Talking about the film, Anjali Patil said, “Mere Pyaare Prime Minister is a product of strong storytelling and great filmmaking. In my opinion, to make such a socially sensitive film without making it a heavy cinema is an art. Apart from the sincerity in the film, the innocent relationship shared by the mother and her son is priceless. The situation they are in and the journey they take together is heartwarming to watch and I feel glad that I got to be a part of such a project. I am thrilled about the World Television Premiere on &pictures as Mere Pyaare Prime Minister will get a wider audience and greater reach.”
