Sharing the video on his social media handles, Kher wrote, “On the last day shoot of #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister someone shoots a off camera moment between @suzannebernert playing #MrsSoniaGandhi & I having tea & biscuits. Shares it on social media. It is already on tv now. Best option is to share it myself. So here it is.”
The 63-year-old actor, in another post, mentioned how his perception about the former PM changed after living the role for a year. He wrote, “And it is a WRAP for one of my most cherished films #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister. Thank you the cast and the crew for the most enriching times. Thank you #DrManmohanSinghJi for your journey. It has been a great learning experience for me. I did have my reservations before doing this film and also wrongly judged you at times but today after finishing the shoot and having almost lived the role for more than one year i can say it with utmost sincerity that history will not misjudge you. Will wait to have that cup of tea with you once you watch our film. ???? #JoyOfCinema @tapmofficial.”
