Bollywood actor Anupam Kher is reportedly being sued for his role in the upcoming film The Accidental Prime Minister for damaging the image of some top people.
Kher who portrays the role of former Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh in the movie has been sued in a court in Bihar along with Akshaye Khanna who plays noted journalist Sanjaya Baru.
The case has been filed by lawyer Sudhir Kumar Ojha who states in his petition that Kher and Khanna have damaged the image of both of them. “It hurt me and many others,” he said.
In his complaint, Ojha said others who have played the role of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra also damaged their image. He has also complained against the film director and producer.
Earlier, this week the trailer of the movie went missing from YouTube annoying Kher who claimed that the trailer was not visible on site despite trending at “Number No 1” the previous day. “Dear @YouTube!!! I am getting messages & calls that in parts of our country if you type, trailer of #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister, it is either not appearing or at 50th position. We were trending at No 1 yesterday. Please help,” he tweeted.
