Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s biopic starring actor Vivek Oberoi released on Friday after being delayed for almost a month. Initially, the film was supposed to be released on April 11 but the Election Commission further stalled the film’s release for violating the Model Code of Conduct pushing its release to May 24. The controversial movie PM Narendra Modi is expected to receive more footfalls at the theatres after the thumping win of BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.
According to the estimates, the biopic based on the life of PM Modi is expected to garner around Rs. 5 crores on its first day. The producer and makers of the biopic on Modi have repeatedly said that the movie is not propaganda as it has been slammed by critics for its almost veneration of the Prime Minister. The opposition parties have opposed the release of the film around the polling period as it was believed that it would sway the voters. They claimed that the release of the film around the polling period could give undue advantage to the BJP in the polls, due to which the Supreme Court banned the film’s release. Moreover, the ‘PM Narendra Modi’ movie ran into trouble after lyricists Javed Akhtar and Sameer found their names as part of the film’s association team. Both, Javed Akhtar and Sameer claimed that they were credited without contributing lyrics for the songs of the film.
Producer Sandip Singh in an interview opened up the reason to make the film chronicling the life of PM Modi, he said, “We are just here to tell the story of a man who has inspired us. He comes from nowhere". Initially, he was a tea seller and later became the Prime Minister of the largest democracy with a population of nearly 125 crores. Being one of the biggest brands in the world, we decided to make a film encircling Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s life story. ‘PM Narendra Modi’ movie features Vivek Oberoi as the Narendra Modi, Manoj Joshi as Amit Shah, Rajendra Gupta as Modi’s father, Zarina Wahab as Modi’s mother and Barkha Bisht Sengupta as Modi’s wife.
