The actor tweeted, "Thank you all for your love, warmth & support for the #FirstLook of #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister. Your response has been overwhelming."
Anupam, in one of his previous interviews, stated "Acting the role of anyone in contemporary history is extremely challenging, as comparisons are bound to be instant and inevitable. But as I have always revelled in challenges, right from my first film Saaransh, I look forward to the experience of portraying PM Manmohan Singh”.
The film is being directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte and produced by Ashoke Pandit and Sunil Bohra. It is slated to release next year.
