In the clip, Kher was seen donning Singh’s trademark blue turban, white kurta-pyjama, along with a black Nehru jacket.

The film is an upcoming biographical political film, based on the life of Dr Singh, the economist and politician who served as the Prime Minister of India from 2004 to 2014 under the United Progressive Alliance.

The film is directed by Vijay Gutte and written by Hansal Mehta. It is based on 2014 memoir of the same name by Sanjay Baru. It also stars Akshaye Khanna in a pivotal role.

The film is scheduled for December 21, 2018, release. (ANI)
