Vivek Oberoi’s PM Narendra Modi biopic to release on April 12
The biopic of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has finally been given a release date after the film went on floors in January 2019. The film starring Vivek Oberoi is set to release on April 12 and is reportedly in the last leg of its shoot in Mumbai. The poster for the film with an unrecognisable Vivek was released in January in 23 languages after it was confirmed that Paresh Rawal was not going to play the PM Modi.
The film is titled PM Narendra Modi and is directed by Omung Kumar, who shot to fame with Mary Kom and Sarbjit. While the filming started in Gujarat, a major part of the film was also shot in Uttarakhand to depict PM Modi’s early life and also his rise towards the top of the political ladder. The film has been shot in locations like UP’s Uttarkashi district in some of the most popular places like Ganga Ghat, Kalp Kedar Mandir as well as Dharali bazar and Mukhba village. The locations for the film were reportedly selected based on the most impact created by Modi during his journey before becoming the Prime Minister of India.
Produced by Sandip Singh and Suresh Oberoi, PM Narendra Modi required Vivek Oberoi to attend various workshops to able to replicate Modi’s distinct mannerisms and get them right. The film will also star Boman Irani, Darshan Kumaar, Prashant Narayanan, Manoj Joshi, Barkha Bisht Sengupta, and Zarina Wahab.
