PM Narendra Modi has been surrounded by controversy ever since the makers revealed about the film. The film which was supposed to release on April 5 will not be releasing on the scheduled date. Producer Sandeep Ssingh recently confirmed the news by sharing a tweet. Reports suggest that the film is yet to receive a censor certificate.
Producer Sandeep recently took to his Twitter to share the news and wrote, “This is to confirm, our film ‘PM Narendra Modi’ is not releasing on 5th April. Will update soon.” Rumours are rife that the film will not hit theatres on April 12, which was the original release date.
Earlier, there were complaints that the film is violating the electoral code of conduct. Producers Anand Pandit, Acharya Manish, Sandeep Ssingh and Suresh Oberoi reacted to it and told the Election Commission that they have nothing to do with the Bharatiya Janata Party.
In an interview with NDTV, Vivek Oberoi, who is playing the role of Narendra Modi in the biopic defended the film and said, “Why are such senior and famous lawyers like Abhishek Singhvi ji and Kapil Sibal ji wasting time on filing a PIL on such a modest film? Don’t know if they are scared of the film or of Chowkidar’s danda”.
Directed by Omung Kumar, the film will showcase the journey of Modi from his humble beginnings to his years as the Gujarat Chief Minister, to the landmark win in the 2014 general elections, and finally becoming the PM.
PM Narendra Modi features Vivek Anand Oberoi who will be seen essaying the role of Modi. The film also features Darshan Kumaar, Boman Irani, Zarina Wahab and Barkha Bisht Sengupta in pivotal roles. Produced by Suresh Oberoi, Anand Pandit, and Sandip
