The opportunity of portraying a contemporary personality like Dr Manmohan Singh in The Accidental Prime Minister is an immense challenge for me as an actor. He is part of a 24/7 media era where world knows his persona minutely. I have been internalizing this character for the past few months. I look forward to translating that effort into cinematic reality.
Actor Akshaye Khanna will also be seen playing another lead role of political commentator Sanjay Baru himself who is also the author of the book 'The Accidental Prime Minister' by Baru. The film is being helmed by debutant Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, along with Hansal Mehta as the creative producer. The script for the film has been penned down by Mayank Tewari, who earlier wrote the script for Oscar nominee film 'Newton'. The film is expected to release on December 21.

Sharing his happiness Anupam tweeted;
Thank you @BAFTA for the nomination. I feel honoured and humbled. ???? #TheBoyWithTheTopKnot
