This is not the first time when she'll be playing the role of Congress President Sonia Gandhi on-screen. Earlier, she has played the same in 'ABP News' show '7 RCR' as well.

She also shared the same on her Instagram account few days ago. She posted a picture of herself dressed as Sonia Gandhi for '7 RCR' & revealed that she's very excited to play the role again in the film. She captioned it as, "As #soniagandhi in #abpnews drama #7rcr in pic with #indiragandhi #navniparihar @navni.parihar #tbt pic courtesy #akhilmishra

Last month, she announced about being a part of 'The Accidental Prime Minister' with this tweet:

Based on Sanjaya Baru's book on the life of former Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, the film will see veteran actor Anupam Kher in the lead role.

The 63-year-old, on Thursday, treated his fans and followers by sharing his first look from the film.

Directed by Vijay Gutte, 'The Accidental Prime Minister' also stars Akshaye Khanna and is slated to release on December 21.
