Mumbai: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Mere Pyare Prime Minister is set to hit the screens on December 14. The film focuses on the issues of open defecation and sanitation problems in the country and has been shot in real locations.
The story revolves around the friendship of four kids living in the slums. The protagonist of the movie, Kanu, is not happy that her mother has to go out to answer the nature's call as they don't have a toilet at home. He then decides to write a letter to the Prime Minister requesting him to get toilets built for them.
National Award-winning actor Anjali Patil plays the role of a mother. The music of the film is composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and lyrics by Gulzar.
The idea first came to Mehra three years ago, when he got attached to an NGO in Ahmedabad called Yuva Unstoppable. The director, along with the NGO started building toilets in municipal schools. They have built toilets in around more than 800 schools since then.
