The wait is finally over guys! The first look poster of the upcoming biopic titled 'PM Narendra Modi' is finally out!
Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi as the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has completely aced the look of the PM and is hard to recognise in the poster.
The makers of the biopic shared the first look poster of the biographical film in 23 languages. The first poster of the film was launched at an event in Mumbai on Monday by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter handle to share the poster, writing, "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."
In the poster, Vivek can be seen standing in PM Modi's signature style and his look resembles the PM to the core.
The biopic will be helmed by Omung Kumar, director of some critically acclaimed biopic films including 'Mary Kom' and 'Sarbjit'. The biographical drama is being produced by Sandip Ssingh.
The shooting of the film will kick start 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.
According to various media reports, the character of PM Modi was earlier being portrayed by Paresh Rawal, who opted out of the film due to some unknown reasons.
Vivek, who had been missing from the acting scene lately, has done films like 'Krrish 3' (2013), 'Omkara' (2006), 'Company' (2002) and 'Saathiya' (2002).
With biopics gaining popularity and some major biographical films including 'The Accidental Prime Minister', 'Thackeray', 'Manikarnika' and 'Saare Jahan Se Accha' releasing in 2019, this one based on the PM of the country, is surely going to be a visual treat to watch!
