First day first show: Politicians react to Accidental Prime Minister

The Anupam Kher starrer The Accidental Prime Minister hit screens a day earlier in the overseas market. Sanjay was the former media advisor of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The Accidental Prime Minister which released today faced a protest from the Youth Congress activists today in Kolkata.

The plea said the trailer violated Section 416 of the Indian Penal Code as impersonation of a living character or living persons is not permissible in law. The film has been the talk of the town ever since its trailer was unveiled.

"They have released some film just before the election".

The appeal against the January 7 order was filed by petitioner Pooja Mahajan in the top court on Wednesday, hours after a division bench of the high court had dismissed the PIL which had sought a ban on both - the film and its trailer - alleging it defamed the constitutional post of Prime Minister.

Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav also targeted Prime Minister Modi, calling him "confused".

"The way public figures are portrayed in the film presents a poor image of the country as well", the advocate said in his complaint, reported The Hindu.
In the name of this movie attempts are being made to distort facts. "It is called The Accidental Prime Minister.but every PM is accidental.so I do not understand the name (of the film)", Banerjee said while inaugurating the state government's annual theatre festival in North 24 Parganas district.

A pat on the back for the team that cast actors for the film. It has been produced by Bohra Bros and released Rudra Production in association with Jayantilal Gada under the banner of Pen India Limited.
