The Accidental Prime Minister: Case filed against Anupam Kher in Bihar court

A lawyer named Sudhir Kumar Ojha has filed a case in Muzaffarpur's Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) court against Anupam Kher and others claiming that it has hurt the images of some top personalities.

The movie ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ seems to have disturbed a lot of people, as a case has been filed in a Bihar court on Wednesday against actor Anupam Kher and other people associated with the upcoming movie for ‘damaging the image of some top people’.

According to reports, a lawyer named Sudhir Kumar Ojha has filed a case in Muzaffarpur’s Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) court. The court has admitted the case and is set to hear the case in Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate court on January 8.

Ojha in his petition complained that both Anupam Kher, who has portrayed the role of former prime minister Manmohan Singh in the movie and actor Akshaye Khanna who plays the role of Sanjaya Baru, have damaged the image of former PM Singh and journalist Baru.

Besides Kher and Khanna, other actors and actresses who have performed the roles of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra have also been named in the complaint alongside the movie’s producers Sunil Bohra and Dhaval Gada and director Vijay Gutte.

The petitioner has claimed that upon watching the trailer of the movie he felt “hurt” and also claimed that film portrays some political leaders like RJD supremo Lalu Prasad, BSP chief Mayawati, former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and senior BJP leader Lal Krishna Advani in a very poor light.

Ojha was filed the complaint under IPC sections 295, 153, 153A, 293, 504 and 120B relating to promoting enmity between different groups, the sale of obscene objects, insult with intent to provoke breach of peace and criminal conspiracy.

Recently, the Maharashtra unit of Youth Congress had 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 “The Accidental Prime Minister” 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. Other than Anupam Kher, the movie stars Akshaye Khanna playing the role of Sanjaya Baru and German actress Suzanne Bernert as Sonia Gandhi has acted in the biopic. The movie is scheduled to be released on January 11, 2019.
