Manmohan Singh too was asked about the film, but he chose to not answer the reporter's question. "If there is an incorrect presentation of facts, such scenes should be removed", he said.

In a tweet, Zaffer alleged that the trailer had some objectionable scenes and "these should be removed or we will not allow to release the movie in state".

Earlier in the day, in a similar move, the Maharashtra unit of Youth Congress has made a decision to stop the film's release in India and demanded a special screening.

It is also unclear whether the production will be confined to assembly or include any component production in India. The report underlines that Foxconn will assemble only the most expensive models like the flagship iPhone X family.

The trailer of Anupam Kher-starrer "The Accidental Prime Minister" has stirred commotion in the political corridors of the country and might have stepped on some toes in the process.

The reason for the high-handed demand of the Congress seems to be its unease with the way former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has been protrayed in the movie. "Fake propaganda by BJP won't desist us from questioning the Modi government on- Rural Distress, Unemployment, Demo Disaster, Flawed GST, Failed Modinomics, All pervading Corruption!" Singh just a regent who was holding on to the PM's chair till the time heir was ready?

At the trailer launch on December 27, Anupam Kher said, "We did not start the film thinking that this kind of political scenario will be there". While the movie is highly controversial as it does not show the Congress party leaders in much good light, its trailer started trending on social media as soon as it got released, and has been liked by many.

Roughly 420,000 workers were deemed essential and are working unpaid, while another 380,000 have been furloughed . Democratic leaders have proposed US$1.3 billion for border security.

This evoked strong reactions from journalists and opposition leaders, with many asking if the BJP had financed the film to extract the electoral advantage in the election year.

The actor, however, defended Manmohan Singh as a person, saying he was "very humane" but not a "well versed politician".

Local BJP legislator T. Raja Singh said he would arrange a special screening of the film in the state and promote it.

Trump added that if needed, the USA can attack IS "so fast and so hard" that they "won't know what the hell happened". Much of the US anti-ISIS mission is run out of Iraq, where the group originated and rose to prominence.

Following the party's instructions, the Maharashtra Youth Congress is likely to come down on its diktat of a pre-screening of the movie.
