One of the most respected actors of the film industry, Anupam Kher took to his Twitter account and questioned Youtube India for removing the trailer of his upcoming film The Accidental Prime Minister, from their website. After it's trailer launch last week, much-anticipated forthcoming film, The Accidental Prime Minister starring veteran actor Anupam Kher made its way back to the limelight, but only for an unfavourable reason, yet again. In the film Kher would be seen acing the role of Dr Manmohan Singh, former Prime Minister of the country. Recently, YouTube India decided to delete the official trailer of this controversial movie which made Kher very furious and so he decided to take his complaints about the platform on his social media handle.
Posting a few screen shots of his fans not able to find the trailer of the movie, also wrote, "Dear @YouTube!!! I am getting messages & calls that in parts of our country if you type, trailer of #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister, it is either not appearing or at 50th position. We were trending at No.1 yday.

While running a YouTube search, you'd find Kher's concern to be valid. Until Tuesday morning, the trailer was trending and could have been found in the top searches on YouTube's page. It’s being speculated that the trailer was pulled down due to the backlash it received for promoting an anti-Congress propaganda and with its release scheduled right before the Lok Sabha elections 2-19, this movie can be a threat to the targeted political party.
The event of the missing trailed has commenced a Twitter storm, as numerous people have started to share screenshots from YouTube, proving their point.
