Aahana Kumra rightfully suits for Priyanka Gandhi’s role and she is expected to be just like Priyanka Gandhi not just in terms of looks and appearance but also in presentation of acting skills. As Aahana gets into the shoes of Priyanka Gandhi, Arjun Mathur and Ram Avatar Bharadwaj would be Rahul Gandhi and the ex-Prime Minister of India Prime Minister Atal Bihari Bajpayee on screen.

The film also has Suzanne Bernert, a German actress along with Divya Seth Shah and Akshay Khanna playing the role of Sonia Gandhi, Mrs Gursharan Kaur and Sanjaya Baru respectively.

The script is beautifully written by Mayank Tewari yet it is based on the originally written fact-oriented political drama and it bears the same name as that of the book. Hansal Mehta is the creative producer and Bohra Bros is the producer of the film. The movie seems to be very special to the whole lot of new star cast. If everything goes well according to the plan, then the film hits the screens on 21st December.

The characters (Mrs. Gursharan Kaurv, wife of former PM Manmohan Singh, Sanjay Baru, former media adviser to Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi, former chief of Indian National Congress and many more) in the film form the ultimate highlight and it is all in the hands of the actors and actresses playing such roles to bring out the real essence and take the reputation of the project towards glory.
