Delhi HC Dismisses PIL Against Trailer of ‘The Accidental PM’

According to reports, the Delhi High Court has on Wednesday morning dismissed a PIL against the release of the trailer of the film The Accidental Prime Minister. The PIL, filed by Pooja Mahajan, a Delhi-based fashion designer through her counsel Arun Maitri, said the film will harm the image of the Constitutional post such as Prime Minister and will give it a bad name nationally and internationally. According to ANI, the court has questioned the locus of the petitioner Pooja Mahajan, who is now moving the Supreme Court over the matter.

A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed in the Delhi High Court on Tuesday seeking a ban on the trailer of the movie The Accidental Prime Minister saying it has caused unaccountable damage to the name and fame of the office of Prime Minster.

The Accidental Prime Minister is based on a similarly titled the book by Sanjaya Baru, the former media advisor of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Actors Anupam Kher and Akshaye Khanna play Manmohan Singh and Baru in the film, slated to release on Friday.
