Narendra Modi Biopic Vivek Oberoi Is A Spitting Image Of PM Modi In The Poster

In what may seem as a bid to overshadow the release of The Accidental Prime Minister on January 11, the PM Modi biopic is expected to go on floors in mid-January.

Fadnavis said it is great that a film on this scale is being made on Modi "under whose leadership India is not only touching new heights but the hopes and expectations of every citizen of India are being fulfilled". While most of these attempts at recreating a person's life story have proved to be commercially successful, but, what caught our attention is the news of Indian PM Narendra Modi getting his own biopic directed by Omung Kumar.

Bharatiya Janata Party member and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis was the chief guest at the poster launch, leaving no doubt about the party's support for the project.

Anderson edges past veteran Karlovic to take Pune title
She said after the match that she didn't know how to cope once things started to go against her. Anderson saved nine of the 10 break points and converted both the chances that came his way.

We must say that Vivek Oberoi, who would be using his full name for the first time, looks nearly unrecognisable in the poster. In the poster, the actor is seen wearing orange khadi kurta, and his white beard and spectacles add a fine touch to the look. Directed by Omung Kumar.

Produced by Suresh Oberoi and Sandip Ssingh, the first shooting schedule of the film will begin in mid-January. We had earlier disclosed that actor Vivek Oberoi will be essaying the role of India's 14th Prime Minister Narendra Modi. At least four other films in the offing with a political message - or a politician for protagonist are under work.

Also, Vivek Oberoi badly needs a break in Bollywood and this might be the one he needed. Who do you think is the best suited for this role?
