PIL against The Accidental Prime Minister trailer dismissed

The filmfeatures actor Anupam Kher as former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and is set for release on January 11.

In the plea, Mahajan had requested the court to issue direction to the Centre, Google, YouTube and Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to take steps to stop the exhibition and display of the trailer.

It was previously reported that the court has admitted the case and fixed 8 January to hear the case in Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate court.

The appeal, filed through advocate A Maitri, has claimed that "at present if the film "The Accidental Prime Minister" is allowed to be released then it will cause unaccountable damage to the name and fame of the office of Prime Minster of India".

Actor Anupam Kher plays the role of Manmohan Singh, Suzanne Bernert that of Sonia Gandhi and Arjun Mathur of Rahul Gandhi.

The movie's producer, director and other key persons associated with the project were also named in the complaint. "It is called The Accidental Prime Minister.but every PM is accidental.so I do not understand the name (of the film)", Banerjee said while inaugurating the state government's annual theatre festival in North 24 Parganas district. "This is nothing but a propaganda film to show former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress party in poor light".

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

The petitioner had alleged in the high court that provisions of the Cinematograph Act were 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.
