A film on Manmohan Singh based on Sanjaya Baru’s book 'The Accidental Prime Minister'?
The flick will reportedly focus on the times spent by Singh in the Prime Minister’s Office.
New Delhi: Manmohan Singh's journey as the Prime minister of India can soon be translated into a film. As per the latest buzz, it is being said that Sanjaya Baru's controversial book 'The Accidental Prime Minister: the Making and Unmaking of Manmohan Singh' will be adapted on-screen.
The flick will reportedly focus on the times spent by Singh in the Prime Minister’s Office. As per an ET report, the teaser of this movie is expected to release on August 30 and the full-length film is slated to hit the silver screens towards the end of 2017.
"The endeavour is not to create any sensation but to present a true account of what transpired during those ten years which changed the political spectrum of the country and fortunes of India's oldest political party-Congress," Sunil Bohra (producer of the movie) was quoted as saying in the report.
ET also suggested that the first look of this film might embarrass Congress as it showcases how the Sonia Gandhi-led party allegedly denied a state funeral to former prime minister Narasimha Rao.
