Patna, January 3 

A case was filed against film actor Anupam Kher and 13 more associated with film “The Accidental Prime Minister” in a court in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur district on Wednesday for “attempt to malign the clean image of some great personalities.”

The petitioner sought the release of the Kher-starrer on January 11 be stopped, arguing that the image of prominent political figures, including that of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Sushma Swaraj and LK Advani had been ‘altered’.

A subdivisional judicial magistrate heard the case and fixed the next hearing for January 8. Talking to The Tribune, petitioner advocate Sudhir Ojha said: “It is a biopic on former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who laid the foundation of ‘modern India’ with his economic policies when he was Finance Minister. But the movie is an attempt to tarnish his image as also of other political figures, hurting the sentiments of crores of people.” — OC
