Vivek Oberoi starrer PM Narendra Modi will be the first film to hit screens as cinema halls reopen on October 15 all over India.
Now re-releasing, the biopic traces the journey of Narendra Modi from his humble beginnings to becoming the Prime Minister of India. The film first released on May 24, 2019. Producer Ssandip Singh feels the last time the movie released in theatres, it fell prey to political agenda and not many could watch it. He hopes this time ‘PM Narendra Modi’ fares well at the box office.
Talking about the decision to re-release the biopic, Singh said, “PM Narendra Modi has been the best Prime Minister of the country, which was proven in the 2019 elections. What can be better than watching the inspiring story of the most inspiring leader of today’s times as theaters re-open.”
Directed by Omung Kumar, the film also stars Boman Irani, Darshan Kumaar, Manoj Joshi, Zarina Wahab, Anjan Shrivastav, Rajendra Gupta, and Akshat R Saluja.
On a negative note, industrialist Amit B Wadhwani, who co-produced the biopic, has lodged a complaint with the cyber cell after receiving death threats online. A Facebook account by the name of Optimistix strongly objected to his association with the movie. Posting an image of his infant child and him, the Facebook user threatened him with life and made slanderous remarks about his family.
