Interestingly, the global actor who looks strikingly similar to the former Prime Minister with the turban and white beard, used to practice 3 - 4 hours daily perfecting his voice that could resemble to Dr Manmohan Singh. Was Dr Singh just a regent who was holding on to the PM's chair till the time heir was ready?

Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala also tweeted a denial, accused the BJP of spreading "fake propaganda". "That's what we have done here", the 63-year-old told ANI.

However defending the tweet, Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore questioned the Congress's stance on freedom. "Watch the official trailer of #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister, based on an insider's account, releasing on 11 Jan!" The party has threatened the producers of the upcoming movie, The Accidental Prime Minister, with dire consequences if they refuse to pre-screen the movie in front of party leaders for being edited according to their own wishes. "The book has been out since 2014, no protests were held since then, so the film is based on that".

While reporter presented his mic to ask a question, as Dr. Singh came out of the vehicle, he immediately got ready to answer the questions but as soon as the reporter had put forward his comment, "What do you think about the film made about you, ?"
