The movie will be releasing in “Winter 2018″. As this movie is based on the real-life character so the (CBFC) Central Board of Film Certification is now demanding an NOC the Non-objection certificate from the filmmaker who is portraying the former Prime Minister real life character in their movie. The Book was a memoir by Indian policy analyst Sanjay Baru who was the media adviser to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh from May 2004 to August 2008. And It was published by Penguin India in 2014.
The book alleges that Manmohan Singh was not entirely in control of his cabinet or even the Prime Minister office. The story of the book revolves around Manmohan Singh, it shows the significant power which was wielded by the Congress party’s president Sonia Gandhi, to whom Manmohan Singh was completely obedient. Sanjay Baru explained in his book that there cannot be two centres of power. After the releasing of the book, the former Prime Minister of India released a statement that ” It is an attempt to misuse a privileged position and access to high office to gain credibility and to apparently exploit it for commercial gain. The commentary smacks of fiction and coloured views of a former advisor”. Now we have to wait for approximately one year to get the full story of Manmohan Singh life.
