The movie has been creating a buzz ever since. It gained further momentum when Anupam Kher who is playing the role of Singh,revealed his look. Even the BTS(behind-the-scenes) videos of the movie went viral Anupam ace the mannerisms of Dr Singh. However, the looks of other characters have also been appreciated.
The Riveting Tale?
The tweet by the BJP, accompanying a nearly three-minute trailer, described the film as a “riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years”. “Was Dr Singh just a regent who was holding on to the PM’s chair till the time heir was ready?” the post said, referring to Congress President Rahul Gandhi as the “heir”.
Who was the most difficult character to cast?
Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Getting his smile was the most difficult thing for me. I got that in a pani puri seller somewhere in Bihar. The actor who plays Amar Singh in the film too belongs to the same town as the real Amar Singh.Kher also described his role as the most challenging one till now !
Movie will release ahead of 2019. Will it help BJP or boost Congress?
While the producer can’t contractually add anything to the script and has said the movie is apolitical, one can hardly miss the political significance.
When the book released in 2014, BJP used it to further their propaganda and accused Congress of nominating a ‘puppet’ PM.
It is highly possible that the saffron party will use the movie to attack Congress in 2019.
