A bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V. Kameswar Rao rejected the Public Interest Litigation filed by Pooja Mahajan, a Delhi-based fashion designer through her counsel Arun Maitri.

Actor Anupam Kher plays the role of Manmohan Singh while Akshaye Khanna is seen in the role of Singh's media advisor Sanjaya Baru in the movie, which is based on a book by the same name authored by Baru and published in 2014.

Earlier this week, Anupam Kher also shared a time-lapse video of his make-up session and wrote in the caption: "Making of Dr Manmohan Singh: This is a 20-sec time lapse video of a two hour job done by my great make and wardrobe team".

The plea in the apex court has sought stay on exhibition of trailer of the film on YouTube and to suspend the release and exhibition of the movie during pendency of the matter.

"They have released some film just before the election".

The court had admitted the case and fixed 8 January to hear the case in the Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate court. The film sparked a row over the alleged distortion of facts.

"The release of film is likely to cause unaccountable damage to high profile public personalities i.e. Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi", it claimed, adding, "it seems that film has been produced in a selected manner and it clearly shows that it's a political propaganda with some other motives". As per the same report, Youth Congress workers started burning posters of the film and were raising slogans against the actors and the producer of the film. The best part is that it shows the human side of Manmohan Singh though not to a great deal.
