After producing the biopic of former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, Bollywood is gearing up for another one, based on the life of current PM Narendra Modi. Actor Vivek Oberoi will be seen essaying the role of the Prime Minister in the upcoming film.
Earlier, in 2017, a biopic of Narendra Modi was announced which would feature Paresh Rawal in the lead role. According to Asian Age, when the actor was asked about his views regarding the forthcoming film starring Vivek Oberoi, he said, “I still maintain that nobody can play Modi other than me. I can do complete justice to the role. However, it’s a free country and even Vivek can play that role. I wish him luck.”
“What I can do with that film, nobody else can. Let anybody do what they want to, we are also coming out soon,” he added.
Meanwhile, Vivek Oberoi’s film titled PM Narendra Modi will be helmed by Omung Kumar and produced by Sandip Ssingh. It is supposed to go on floors in mid-January.
The film will portray the journey of Narendra Damodar Modi from his humble beginnings to his years as the chief minister of Gujarat, and finally, his landmark election as the Prime Minister of India.
