Yet only the trailer of the film ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ is out, it has created a huge buzz across the country during the election season and gathered a bunch of controversies as the film is focusing direct attack on the Gandhis, especially Sonia Gandhi. In a fresh report, The Accidental Prime Minister and its members, including veteran actor Anupam Kher have landed in legal trouble. A case has been filed against the film and actor in a Bihar court on Wednesday for mangling with the image of top leaders.
The petition has been filed by a lawyer named Sudhir Kumar Ojha against the movie in Muzaffarpur’s chief judicial magistrate court. What surprising here is, that the court has admitted the case and will hear the plea on January 08 by the case in Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate Court.
