Anupam Kher featured in two of the most dramatic and most amusing movies of 2018, Aiyaary and Baa Baa Black Sheep, respectively.

Actor Anupam Kher, who plays the role of Manmohan Singh in the film "Accidental Prime Minister", on Friday asked why the Congress is protesting against the movie now when the book, on which it is based, has been in the makrket since 2014. He was quoted by news agency ANI, "Can't we extend our wishes for a film?"

The makers of The Accidental Prime Minister have released the trailer of the movie, and has received positive response from viewers on social media. "I watched 100 hours of his footage but the most challenging part was the voice. It was quite challenging and one of the most hard roles I've ever played". The film also features Akshaye Khanna as the PM's advisor, Suzanne Bernert as Indian National Congress former president Sonia Gandhi, Aahana Kumra as Priyanka Gandhi and Arjun Mathur as Rahul Gandhi among others. I was a disaster and that challenged me to take up this role. That challenged me. I rehearsed his walk for 45 minutes but I couldn't get it right so, I called the makers for the narration of the script and I was very fascinated by it. "I then made a decision to read the script and it was great". They know that time has come to give answers after completion of five years and they are now trying to divert attention by raising such issues and evade answering to the public after its government failed on all fronts, he said.
