Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's upcoming film, Mere Pyare Prime Minister, is all set to release on 8 March, 2019. Mehra made the announcement via his official Twitter handle on 20 December.

Mehra, who has explored stories that are rooted in the country in his previous films such as Rang De Basanti and Delhi 6, will focus on the issue of open defecation and sanitation problems in the country with Mere Pyare Prime Minister. It highlights the relationship between a mother and son, and stars National Award-winning actress Anjali Patil in the role of the mother.

As reported earlier, the film has been shot in real locations which were finalised after the recce of one month in Mumbai. Three years ago, Mehra had visited the Gandhi Ashram in Gandhinagar with an NGO which had decided to bring about change in the country after the release of Rang De Basanti. After seeing the Mahatma’s model toilets, the filmmaker started an initiative to build washrooms in municipal schools.

Mere Pyare Prime Minister was earlier slated to be released on Gandhi Jayanti since the film, Mehra had said, was inspired by Mahatma Gandhi.
