Based on Sanjay Baru’s book The Accidental Prime Minister: The Making and Unmaking of Manmohan Singh, the film is said to be written by Hansal Mehta. Debutant Vijay Ratnakar Gutte will reportedly direct the film.

A media report quoted Anupam as saying, “Acting the role of anyone in contemporary history is extremely challenging, as comparisons are bound to be instant and inevitable. But as I have always revelled in challenges, right from my first film Saaransh, I look forward to the experience of portraying PM Manmohan Singh.”

Anupam Kher will also be soon seen in Akshhay Kumar-Bhumi Pednekar’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha.
