Youth Congress demands to censor the movie ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’, threatens to stop release

Youth Congress alleges facts have been played with and presented incorrect manner in the movie.

The Maharashtra unit of Youth Congress has sent a letter to the producers of the movie The Accidental Prime Minister, asking for a special screening for them before the theatrical release of the movie, so that they can censor it. The movie is a biopic on former prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh, based on a book with the same name by Sanjaya Baru, who was media advisor of Dr Singh. Directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, the film stars veteran actor Anupam Kher as Manmohan Singh. The movie is scheduled to be released on January 11, 2019.

The trailer of the movie was released on Youtube, and it seems the youth Congress is not happy with the portrayal of various characters movie. They have written that ‘facts have been played with and presented in an incorrect manner’. They also say that the way Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi and Congress party is shown in the movie is not acceptable to them.

Therefore, they have demanded a screening of the full movie before its release, so that they can decide if there are any un-actual scenes that malign the image of the party and its release. If such scenes are found in the movie, they have to be edited and deleted, says the letter. The Youth Congress than goes on to threaten that if the movie is released without pre-screening for them and without making changes as demanded by them, they will stop the screening of the movie across India.

Last year, Congress activists had disrupted the screening of the movie Indu Sarkar at various places in India. Directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, the movie was set in the period of the emergency in India, and Congress was not happy with the way former PM Indira Gandhi and her son Sanjay Gandhi was portrayed in the movie. Apart from disrupting screening, the Congress workers also had forced the filmmakers to cancel promotional activities for the movie. The government had to provide police protection to Madhur Bhandarkar to safeguard his life.

Now it seems The Accidental Prime Minister will also face similar protests and disruptions by the Congress party workers. Other than Anupam Kher, the movie stars Akshaye Khanna playing the role of Sanjaya Baru and German actress Suzanne Bernert as Sonia Gandhi, who has acted in several TV serials in India before.
