Anupam Kher reacts to protests against ‘The Accidental..’ in Kolkata

On Saturday Bollywood Actor Anupam Kher reached out to Congress president Rahul Gandhi after his party workers occupied a protest against the screening of ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ inside a theatre in Kolkata.

The veteran actor, who portrays Dr. Manmohan Singh in the film, took to his official social media handle to remind Rahul regarding his earlier tweet on freedom of expression.

He wrote, “Dear @RahulGandhi. I don’t think your supporters who vandalized a theatre playing #TheAccidentalPrimeminister read your tweets about #FreedomOfExpression.”

Meanwhile, a video of the incident was newly made public by ANI. In the clip, a group of radicals can be seen crossing around the mall sloganeering against the screening of the movie and the lead actor, Anupam Kher.

‘The Accidental Prime Minister’, which knocked out the big screens on Friday, is based on facts as narrated in a book by Sanjaya Baru– Manmohan Singh’s media advisor between 2004 and 2008.

It rotates around Singh’s life, the politician and economist who served as the Prime Minister of India from 2004 to 2014 under the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government.

The film has been making a lot of buzz from the opposition Congress party which jabbed holes in the portrayal of the former prime minister.

The party too criticized the trailer, which was issued in December, saying that the movie shows Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul Gandhi in a wrong light.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart.
