A movie titled an Accidental Prime Minister has been made keeping the elections in mind.
Hearing a complaint alleging that the movie presents former prime minister Manmohan Singh and several other public figures in a "bad light", the sub-divisional judicial magistrate's court in Muzaffarpur directed the Kanti police station to lodge an FIR.
The petitioner had alleged in the high court that provisions of the Cinematograph Act were being misused and the film producer has released the trailer affecting the image of the office of the prime minister and giving a bad name to it at the national and global level. "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. This is a movie which talks about modern Indian politics, made with wonderful amount of brilliance by the directors and the producers and the cast is phenomenal. Other releases like Viswasam and Petta are not going to affect this movie but Vicky Kaushal's Uri which is also becoming popular by its thrilling trailer can affect the box office collection of the movie.
It alleged that promo of the film showed that the movie has been produced "simply to damage the image" of Singh.
