Mumbai: Anupam Kher, who plays former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in The Accidental Prime Minister, recently tweeted a photo of actors Arjun Mathur and Aahana Kumra who play Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi, respectively, in the upcoming film.
The veteran actor shared a photo on his Twitter handle where he is seen as the former PM in conversation with Aahana who plays Priyanka Gandhi. Also seen in the frame is Arjun who essays the role of Congress chief Rahul Gandhi. Just like the other cast, Aahana and Arjun also hold an uncanny resemblance to their real-life counterparts.
