The Accidental Prime Minister’ the Manmohan Singh biopic starring Anupam Kher in the titular role has been challenged in the Supreme Court as a piece of political propaganda intended to damage his reputation

The movie is set for worldwide release on January 11.

Petitioner Pooja Mahajan alleged that provisions of the Cinematograph Act are being misused and the film producer has released the trailer affecting the image of the office of the prime minister and giving a bad name to it at the national and worldwide level.

It was produced by the Bohra Bros under Rudra Production (UK), in association with Jayantilal Gada under the banner of Pen India Limited.

He said if the adverse order is passed, it would be the producers who would be affected as it is their money which is at stake.

Sheriff says missing Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs has been found alive
Jayme Closs was taken from her home in Barron, Wisconsin on October 15, after the teenager's parents were shot dead in their home. Autopsies determined the two died of gunshot wounds and were murdered, and that Closs was inside the home when they were killed.

On Monday, a single judge bench on Monday disposed off the plea saying it should be refiled at a public suit.

A day before Delhi High Court hears a plea seeking a stay on the trailer of the upcoming Bollywood movie "The Accidental Prime Minister", a local court in Bihar on Tuesday ordered lodging of an FIR against actors Anupam Kher, Akshaye Khanna and 15 others associated with the movie. Ojha claimed that the film's trailer had hurt his sentiments. The film is based on the 2014 memoir of the same name by Sanjaya Baru.

The PIL, filed by Pooja Mahajan, a Delhi-based fashion designer through her counsel Arun Maitri, said the film will harm the image of the Constitutional post such as Prime Minister and will give it a bad name nationally and internationally. In his petition, filed through advocate Kannan Malik, Anumit has sought the quashing of the certificate issued for the movie by Central Board of Film Certification and a stay on its release during the pendency of the case. "In fact, the disclaimer given in the trailer is untrue, false and fake". It stars Anupam Kher in the titular role of former PM Manmohan Singh.
