Eerie similarity with the launch timing of the book and the film

Sanjaya Baru’s 2014 memoir of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was released just before the Lok Sabha elections in 2014. The launch of the cinematic adaptation also is just before the 17 Lok Sabha elections in 2019. A similarity or is there more to it? Detractors also described Sanjay Baru's memoir as the work of a disgruntled media advisor and the chief spokesperson who was not given an extension by the PM during his second term.
