There is nothing accidental about "The Accidental Prime Minister".
'The Accidental Prime Minister' is based on facts as chronicled in a book by Sanjaya Baru-- Manmohan Singh's media advisor between 2004 and 2008.

Ahead of Lok Sabha polls of 2019, a film about the second Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri is set to raise a political storm after the much controversial trailer of "The Accidental Prime Minister".
Once the trailer released last month, the Twitter handle of ruling party BJP shared it. And since then, the film is receiving polarised feedback from the general audience.
In his complaint, Mr Ojha said others who have played the role of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra also damaged their image.
Bollywood actor Anupam Kher’s upcoming hindi film ‘The Accidental prime Minister’ is undoubtedly one of the most-awaited movies of 2019.
The film found itself at the centre of a political controversy with the BJP sharing the trailer on its official Twitter handle, terming it a "riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years".
"I have done 515 films, there are not even as many political parties. If I have to support a party I can do it on any platform. I will not try to make a film for that," Anupam Kher said.
The film has sparked a row over alleged distortion of facts.
Veteran actor Anupam Kher says the film 'The Accidental Prime Minister' is based on facts as chronicled in a book by Sanjaya Baru, media advisor to Manmohan Singh between 2004 and 2008.
Directed by debutant Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, and written by Hansal Mehta, 'The Accidental Prime Minister' stars Anupam Kher as Manmohan Singh and Akshaye Khanna as Sanjay Baru and is slated to release on January 11, 2019.
The teaser trailer shows how people, living their normal life in the city, were held hostage by the terrorists.
Actor Anupam Kher was on October 11 announced as the new Chairperson of the Film and Television Institute of India.
The actor said this after wrapping up the shoot of 'The Accidental Prime Minister' movie, in which he is playing the role of the former Prime Minister Dr. Singh.
