FIR filed against “The Accidental Prime Minister” filmmaker Vijay Ratnakar Gutte
An FIR has been filed against filmmaker Vijay Ratnakar Gutte’s movie The Accidental Prime Minister and the actors Anupam Kher, Akshaye Khanna and 12 other people associated with the film.
The complaint was lodged at Kanti Police Station earlier this week. The Accidental Prime Minister is a film which is based on the same name written by Sanjaya Baru.
The case has been lodged under IPC sections 295,153,153A,293,504,506,120B and 34 for promoting enmity among different groups. The complainant said the movie portrayed the public figures in a manner that projected a poor image of India.
“Yes, I know there has been a case filed against the movie. Not only me but also the people who are in this case, don’t know any details of the complaint. The book based on which the movie is made, has been in public since 2014 and many news channels have used the content but why is it creating a problem now. I don’t know. I wanted to create something new, even CBFC passed it after few minor changes. But one thing is for sure, I will never make a political film again in my career as a filmmaker”, said the debutant director Vijay Ratnakar Gutte.
