The much-anticipated trailer of The Accidental Prime Minister, starring Anupam Kher as the former Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, released yesterday. The film revolves around the life of Manmohan Singh, the economist who served as the Prime Minister for 10 years from 2004 to 2014.Â
The film has been generating a lot of buzz owing to the strikingÂ resemblance of its characters with the real life counterparts.Â Anupam Kher, who has tried to copy the mannerisms of Manmohan Singh, seems to have got it right for the most part.
In the film, Akshaye Khanna playsÂ Sanjaya Baru who was the media advisor of Manmohan Singh. While German actor Suzanne Bernert playsÂ Sonia Gandhi, Aahana Kumara will be seen asÂ Priyanka Gandhi. Arjun Mathur playsÂ Rahul GandhiÂ in The Accidental Prime Minister. The film is helmed by debutant Vijay Ratnakar Gutte.
As the movie is nearing its release date, we have listed five fire dialogues from the trailer:
Sanjay Baru (played by Akshaye Khanna): â€˜â€™100 crore ki abaadiÂ waleÂ issÂ deshÂ ko yeÂ gineÂ chuneÂ logÂ chalateÂ hain" (A handful of people run this country with a population of millions.)
Sanjay Baru (played by Akshaye Khanna): â€˜'PM ke liye kaam karta hu, party ke liye nahiâ€™â€™ (I work for the prime minister, not for the political party.)
Random party worker: "Par PMÂ tohÂ partyÂ keÂ liyeÂ kaamÂ karteÂ hai, Baru." (But the prime minister works for the party, Baru.)â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹
Sanjay Baru (played by Akshaye Khanna): â€˜â€™Yeh Nuclear deal ki ladayiâ€¦hamare liye toh Panipat ki ladai se bhi badi thiâ€™â€™ (This fight for nuclear deal has been like Panipatâ€™s fight for me.)
Sonia Gandhi:Â "AgarÂ aapÂ PakistankeÂ saathÂ shaantiÂ kaÂ samjhautaÂ karengeÂ tohÂ nayeÂ primeÂ ministekyaÂ karenge?" (If you enterÂ peacefulÂ talks with Pakistan then what will the new prime minister do?)Â Â
Dr Manmohan Singh (played by Anupam Kher): "Mujhe koi credit nahi chahiye, mujhe apne kaam se matlab hai kyunki mere liye deshpehle aata hai." (I don't want any credit for myself, I am only concerned with my work because my country comes first.)Â Â
Sonia Gandhi: "EkÂ keÂ baadÂ doosra corruption scandal...aiseÂ maaholÂ meinÂ Rahul (Gandhi)Â kaise takeoverÂ karÂ saktaÂ hai?" (One corruption scandal after another...how can RahulÂ takeoverÂ as prime minister in this situation?)Â
