It features Anupam Kher playing the role of former PM, Dr. Manmohan Singh.

The trailer also displays polished performances by German actress Suzanne Bernert, Aahana Kumra and Arjun Mathur, who play Sonia, Priyanka and Rahul Gandhi respectively.

The biographical political drama ' The Accidental Prime Minister', scheduled to release on January 11, has already raised political temperatures with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) latching on to it to hit out at the Gandhi family, while the Congress has questioned the BJP's motive behind "promoting the film" and raised objections to the "incorrect presentation of the facts" in the film, the trailer of which was released on Thursday. The Maharashtra Youth Congress said that if some scenes of the movie found to be unfactual, the same would have to be deleted otherwise they would not allow the film to be released. But the man who plays the prime minister has plenty to say.

This evoked strong reactions from journalists and opposition leaders, with many asking if the BJP had financed the film to extract the electoral advantage in the election year.

Resistance by the Congress to the film's release followed the launch of its trailer on Thrusday. But for the BJP, it's a "riveting tale". Actor Anupam Kher has played Singh's role in the movie, directed by debutant filmmaker, Vijay Ratnakar Gutte. The project was announced two years ago, and every newspaper wrote about my look. "But I am an actor, they will decide".

This film, according to me, should be India's entry to the Oscars and I should be nominated for my performance, Anupam Kher added. Presenting the trailer of our highly anticipated film #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister. "Daniel Day-Lewis got it for Lincoln, Meryl Streep for her performance as Margaret Thatcher, Ben Kingsley got it for Gandhi." he said. "So he should scold the Maharashtra Youth Congress Members for protesting against it (Haal hi main Rahul Gandhi Ji ka tweet padha tha, jisme freedom of expression pe unhone bola tha, toh I think unko daatna chahiye un logon ko ki aap ghalat baat kar rahe ho)".
