At the trailer launch of the movie, veteran actor Anupam Kher was asked if BJP intends to use this movie as an advantage as it is releasing just before the Lok Sabha elections, he said, “Patriotic films release on Independence Day and Republic Day, so we decided that we will release our film around elections, as it is on politics. What’s the problem in that?”
Anupam Kher who has transformed himself into looking like Manmohan Singh has also adapted his idiosyncrasies, similarly, other actors are also showing a striking resemblance in their characters with their real-life counterparts.
