The shooting commenced from the first week of April and yesterday, Kher wrapped up the first foreign schedule.

The film is based on the memoir of the same name which was written by Sanjaya Baru and it is being directed by debutant, Vijay Ratnakar Gutte.
Speaking about his role, Kher had earlier said, “The opportunity of portraying a contemporary personality like Dr Manmohan Singh in The Accidental Prime Minister is an immense challenge for me as an actor. He is part of a 24/7 media era where world knows his persona minutely. I have been internalizing this character for the past few months. I look forward to translating that effort into cinematic reality.”
Apart from Kher, the film also stars Akshaye Khanna as the media advisor and chief spokesperson of Dr Manmohan Singh, the role of Sonia Gandhi will be played by Suzanne Bernert and actress Aahana Kumara has been roped in to play Priyanka Gandhi, daughter of Sonia.
