Another biopic has been added to the already-existing long list of biopics. If latest reports are to be believed, a film on Prime Minister Narendra Modi is under consideration and reportedly, Vivek Oberoi will essay his role. According to a report in Bombay Times, “The actor will play the reigning PM in a film that will be shot across Gujarat, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, among other locations in the country, over a period of a few months. Vivekanand, who has films like 'Krrish 3' (2013), 'Omkara' (2006), 'Company' (2002) and 'Saathiya' (2002) to his credit, has been actively involved with all the prep work that has gone into the project.”
The film will be helmed by Omung Kumar and is yet-to-be titled. Earlier reports are abuzz that Paresh Rawal was being considered to play the Prime Minister. He had confirmed his news to Indianexpress and said, “We are just locking the script and hopefully it will finish soon, and we will begin to shoot it in September or October. The script has been finalised and I'm happy with the way it's been written. We are going on floors in September. It will be a hugely challenging role.”
He had also said, “Let me assure you nobody else can pull off Narendra Modi's role. I am sure you all will enjoy my performance, just wait and watch." Now that Vivek Oberoi has took over the role, let's see how it all pans out.
