New Delhi, July 5: After unveiling the looks of reel Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi, Anupam Kher on Thursday took to social media to introduce the remaining cast of his film ”The Accidental Prime Minister”. He revealed the actors essaying the roles of LK Advani, Lalu Prasad Yadav and Shivraj Patil and the onscreen politicians look on point.
Sharing a collage of images on his Instagram, Kher wrote, “Introducing Avtar Sahni as #LKAdvaniJi, Vimal Verma as #LaluPrasadYadavJi and Anil Rastogi as #ShivRajPatilJi.:) #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister @tapmofficial @sunil_s_bohra #VijayGutte.”
The film is a political drama which will present the story of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and is based on a book by Sanjaya Baru, a former media advisor to Manmohan Singh.
Kher, who plays Manmohan, seems to have adopted the mannerisms of the former PM quite well.
Kher wrapped up the Delhi schedule of the film and is now “looking forward” to the last schedule. He also shared a picture with “the brilliant” Akshaye Khanna.
“The Delhi schedule of our film ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ comes to an end. It was great to shoot in a city where I learnt so much about acting (National School Of Drama). It has been a learning experience to work with some superb actors from this city. Thank you Delhi,” Anupam wrote.
