As per the reports, American actor Ryan Eggold is also a part of this series and he will essay the character of Dr. Max Goodwin, the new and young medical director who is on a mission to trash the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care.
Besides Anupam and Eggold, the cast also includes Janet Montgomery, Jocko Sims and Tyler Labine.
On the other hand, Kher’s The Accidental Prime Minister is based on the book of the same name written by Sanjaya Baru and focuses on the operations of Manmohan Singh, alleging that the then PM was never fully in control of his cabinet. The political drama will see Anupam as Dr. Singh, German actor Suzanne Bernert as Sonia Gandhi, Ahana Kumra as Priyanka and Arjun Mathur as Rahul Gandhi. It’s slated to release on December 21.
