While PM Narendra Modi biopic, starring Vivek Oberoi, is still struggling with numerous controversies, makers are going ahead with the release of film's promos. A few minutes back, a new promo of the film, depicting the 2002 Godhra riots, hit social media.

To talk about the controversies surrounding the film, a few weeks back, veteran lyricists Javed Akhtar and Sameer slammed the makers for using their names on the posters of the film, as they claimed that they didn’t write a single song for them. Later, MNS leader Shalini Thackeray demanded a ban on the movie, ahead of Lok Sabha elections. A few days back, Congress Party met the Election Commission to stall the release of the film, following which Vivek Vivek Oberoi cancelled all media interviews.
