Once the film on Sanjaya Baru's The Accidental Prime Minister: the Making and Unmaking of Manmohan Singh releases, it is bound to raise hackles. For now however, it is tickling Twitter's funny bone.
Reports of a film being produced on Baru's bestselling book on Dr Manmohan Singh first appeared in a leading daily yesterday. According to media reports, the casting is yet to be finalised but producer Sunil Bohra is confident that they will be able to release a teaser by August end.
The movie is supposed to be a 'true reflection' of the book by Baru which makes Twitter's suggestions of finally making Pushpak 2 seem realistic. Might we suggest Monica Belluci for Sonia's role and Naseeruddin Shah as Dr Manmohan Singh please? Kamal Hassan works as well, but not sure if he'd want to reprise his role as Pushpak again.
Twitter at least is enthusiastic about the idea, even if Congress-men probably aren't:
These trolls just want to watch the world burn
Bet The Accidental PM will be a silent movie. Also, all those outraging over Udta Panjab right now will be silent when this will be banned.— Demon Chopda (@Chopdasaab) June 13, 2016
Would love to see Kamal Haasan take over The Accidental PM and make it Pushpak - 2.— Ashwin S Kumar (@ashwinskumar) June 13, 2016
