Anupam Kher responds to protests against ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ in Kolkata

Anupam Kher on Saturday reached out to Congress president Rahul Gandhi after his party workers held a demonstration against the screening of ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ inside a cineplex in Kolkata.

The veteran actor, who plays former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh in the film, took to social media to remind Rahul about his earlier tweet on freedom of expression.

He wrote, “Dear @RahulGandhi.

I don’t think your supporters who vandalised a theatre playing#TheAccidentalPrimeminister read your tweets about #FreedomOfExpression.” Meanwhile, a video of the incident was recently made public.

In the clip, a group of protesters can be seen moving around the mall sloganeering against the screening of the movie and the lead actor, Kher.

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

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