On Wednesday, the veteran actor took to social media, sharing a video donning his look for the film.

In an exclusive interview with mid-day, the Saraansh actor gave an insight into the former prime minister's method of speech, which took him three months to master. "I used techniques I had learned when studying drama. The process affected my throat because Dr Singh's voice is husky and thinner [than mine]. I would gargle often, and practice exercises for my voice. It was the toughest thing I have had to do as an actor," says Kher. A unit hand reveals that Kher also watched over 400-hours of footage of Singh to study his mannerisms. "Some of the videos included tapes from Republic Day parades and conferences."

The movie also features Vimal Verma as Laloo Prasad Yadav, Shiv Subrahmanyam as P.Chindambram, Manoj Tiger as Aman Singh, Naval Shukla as Yashwant Sinha, Ajit Satbhai as Narsimha Rao, Divya Seth Shah as Gursharan Kaur, Sunil Kothari as APJ Abdul Kalam, Suzzane Bernet as Sonia Gandhi and Pradip Chakrabarti as Pranab Mukherjee.

The script is written by Vijay Gutte and Mayank Tewari; Tewari recently won the Asian Film Awards for India's official Oscar's entry - Newton.
