Actor Vivek Oberoi called it a role of lifetime now that it is confirmed that he will play Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an upcoming movie.
What has raised hopes is that the biopic will be directed by Omung Kumar, who has films such as Mary Kom and Sarbjit to his credit.
The film poster was launched only yesterday.
“Narendra Modi is one of the tallest leaders in the world and to bring his personal qualities on screen is an incredible challenge and I want all your blessings that we can complete this incredible journey,” Vivek Oberoi added.
The film’s poster was launched in the presence of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in 27 languages.
It features Vivek, dressed in a yellow kurta with tricolour in the backdrop. The tagline reads, “Deshbhakti ki meri shakti hai.”
Actor Suresh Oberoi, Vivek’s father, is co-producing the film along with Sandeep Ssingh.
Vivek was one of the guests from Bollywood who attended PM Modi’s swearing-in ceremony in May 2014.
