Famous Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Mere Pyare Prime Minister’ compromises with the sensitive matter of open defecation in India by reciting the story of an 8-year-old whose dreams of building a restroom for his mother lands him in front of the Prime Minister’s residence.

The trailer, which released on Sunday, gives a glance into the plot of the film which reflects the journey of Kanhu, a slum boy, who, after his mother is molested by an unknown person, decides to compose a letter to the Prime Minister.

Kanhu admires his mother Sargam, sported by Anjali Patil, and does odd jobs to add to her income. In one scene, he can be looked at selling condoms on the streets.

The trailer begins on a brighter note however takes a sentimental turn when one day, Sargam goes out to secrete in the middle of the night and is molested by a man on her way back home.

Worried about his mother’s safety, Kanhu decides to move out to the one person who he feels is the most influential person in India- the Prime Minister. “How would you feel if something like this happens with your mother,” he asks in the letter.
