Anupam Kher, who has a lot of resemblance to the lead character, has mastered the body language of Manmohan Singh. Akshaye Khanna, who is playing the role of Sanjay Baru, also seems to be the narrator in the film. German actor Suzanne Bernert is essaying the role of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi in the film. Divya Seth is essaying the role of Manmohan Singh’s wife Gursharan Kaur while Ram Avatar Bhardawaj will be seen as former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

Speaking about the film to Indian Express, Kher emphasised on perceiving the film as only a film. “This film has to be perceived as a film, it should not get into controversies just because of whosoever is in the background. There is also a lot of humour in this film. There is a lot of conversation too, so people can’t say that it is a silent film. Anyway, there are many people who are waiting to see if I have goofed up in any way while playing this character. They are waiting to attack me. But, as an actor, I will never let that happen,” the actor said.
The film is slated to hit the screens on 11 January 2019.
