The poster of PM Narendra Modi, a biopic on current Indian Prime Minister, starring Vivek Oberoi, is out. The actor released the posters of the film in 23 languages with Maharashtra’s CM Devendra Fadnavis in Mumbai today, January 7. The actor looks completely unrecognisable in the poster, which features him in the titular role. Wearing an orange coloured khadi kurta, a watch with the tricolour fluttering in the background, Vivek’s first look on the poster seems impressive.
Releasing the poster on Twitter, trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, “Vivek Anand Oberoi [Vivek Oberoi] to star in Narendra Modi biopic, titled #PMNarendraModi… The first look poster was launched in 23 languages by Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis… Directed by Omung Kumar… Produced by Suresh Oberoi and Sandip Ssingh”.

The film is being directed by Omung Kumar, who has earlier helmed Sarbjit, and Mark Kom. The caption of the film, as written on the poster is ‘Deshbhakti Hi Meri Shakti Hai‘ (My love for my nation is my strength). Interestingly, Vivek has changed his name to Vivek Anand Oberoi on the poster. The film is being co-produced by his father Suresh Oberoi and Bhumi fame Sandip Singh.
Earlier, the speculations were rife that actor Paresh Rawal was playing the character of Modi in his biopic. However, the makers announced it a few days back that Vivek is the screen’s new Modi. The shooting of the film is going to begin in mid-January. Reportedly, the film will be shot across Gujarat, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand, among other locations in the country, over a period of a few months.
Vivek has got films like Krrish (2013), Company (2002), Kyun! Ho Gaya Na… (2004), Yuva (2004) among others in his kitty.
