New Delhi, Aug 29 (IANS) Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Sunday evening watched Bollywood star Aamir Khan's production 'Peepli Live' at his 7 Race Course Road residence, an official said.

'Dr. Singh watched the film with interest,' the official in the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) told IANS after the special screening of the film.

'Peepli Live' is a political satire based on farmers' suicides and the superfluous approach by media on issue.

Manmohan Singh's wife Gursharan Kaur, his family members and some close friends also watched the film at the special screening.

Aamir, the film's director Anusha Rizvi, distributor Ronnie Screwala and actors Raghuvir Yadav and Omkar Das Manikpuri were also present, the official said.

According to Congress sources, several party leaders had recommended the film to the prime minister.

Earlier, Aamir had held a screening of 'Peepli Live' for senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader L.K. Advani and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray.
