Plea in Delhi High Court to Ban Trailer of 'The Accidental Prime Minister'

On Saturday a petition was filed in the Delhi High Court seeking ban on the trailer of the upcoming movie 'The Accidental Prime Minister', alleging that it defames the constitutional post.

Stating that facts in the film had been distorted to damage the image of Ex- Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, the petition said the trailer was affecting relations with foreign countries and would impact the sovereignty and integrity of India.

 Delhi-based designer Pooja Mahajan has filed the petition alleging that the trailer violates Section 5-B of Cinematography Act and Rule 38 of Cinematograph (Certification) Rules, 1983, which it says allow only the title of the movie to be displayed. actors in the movie have committed the offence of cheating by impersonation under Section 416 of the Indian Penal Code.

It is also alleged that various political leaders such as Lalu Prasad Yadav, Mayawati and Ex-Prime Minister Late Sh. Atal Bihari Vajpayee are projected in a very poor light in the movie.

The matter is likely to be heard on 7 January 2019.

The film, based on former PMO adviser Sanjay Baru’s controversial book by the same name, is set to release on January 11. The film depicts the life of Ex- Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who served as India’s PM from 2004-2014
