Love them, hate them but you can't just ignore their stellar performance in The Accidental Prime Minister as per Twitterati, who are lauding Anupam Kher and Akshaye Khanna ever since the movie released today.

The Accidental Prime Minister has been in the news since a while now due to the reported controversial content. In the film, Anupam Kher is seen essaying the role of Dr. Manmohan Singh while Akshaye Khanna is seen playing the role of Baru.

The film is scheduled to release on January 11.

The appeal against the January 7 order was filed by petitioner Pooja Mahajan in the top court on Wednesday, hours after a division bench of the high court had dismissed the PIL which had sought a ban on both - the film and its trailer - alleging it defamed the constitutional post of Prime Minister.

"Let me tell those who are doing this drama before the elections, they must also watch another film, it is called Disaster Prime Minister!"

Though Hardik apologized for his comments, he could be facing a suspension along with Rahul, who accompanied to the show. Pandya had boasted about hooking up with multiple women and being open about it with his parents during the interview.

A pat on the back for the team that cast actors for the film.

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

According to reports, he also claimed that the film projected the country and a host of its political leaders, ranging from RJD supremo Lalu Prasad and BSP chief Mayawati to former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and his deputy Lal Krishna Advani, in a very poor light.

Helmed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, The Accidental Prime Minister is bankrolled by Sunil Bohra and Dhaval Gada under the banners of Rudra Productions (UK), Bohra Bros. and Pen India Limited.

The plea also alleged that if the film will be released, friendly relations with the USA and other foreign states were likely to be affected.
