The Delhi High Court has dismissed the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) against the release of the trailer of Anupam Kher-starrer 'The Accidental Prime Minister.'

The petitioner, Pooja Mahajan, had sought a stay on the trailer of former prime minister Manmohan Singh's biopic, stating that it features an incorrect representation of the facts to malign Singh's image.

The court on Wednesday questioned the locus of the petitioner, Pooja Mahajan.

Her counsel has now said they are moving the Supreme Court.

The recently released trailer of 'The Accidental Prime Minister' also drew a lot of flak from the Congress party. Maharashtra Youth Congress raised objections over the film and demanded its special screening to ensure that none of the scenes is factually incorrect.

The film is based on facts chronicled in a book by Sanjaya Baru-- Manmohan Singh's media advisor between 2004 and 2008. It revolves around Singh's life, the economist and politician who served as the Prime Minister of India from 2004 to 2014 under the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government. (ANI)
