After a long wait and grand launch event, the trailer of PM Narendra Modi biopic has been launched on Wednesday by director Omung Kumar and the star cast of the film including Vivek Oberoi. Omung Kumar, who is known for making films like Mary Kom and Sarabjit, has directed the biopic, which is now being release on April 5. In the trailer, Vivek Oberoi has slipped into PM Narendra Modi’s shoes and took us through the different chapter of the current Prime Minister’s eventful life. It shows how PM Modi rose from nothing and became one of the most powerful political leaders of the world.
Vivek Oberoi, who is portraying Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an upcoming biopic, says he is a "balanced person" and has respect for both the supporters and the detractors of the PM. During the trailer launch of the film PM Narendra Modi, the 42-year-old actor said he is not an "extreme" person when it comes to his political leanings.
"I'm not an extreme kind of a person. I am a balanced person. I appreciate the bhakts and criticism of the critics. You are portraying a living legend and those who hate or love him, do that with intensity. People have become his bhakt.”
The Omung Kumar-directed film was previously scheduled for April 12, apparently a day after the completion of the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections, but has now been preponed to April 5.
Vivek evaded a query about the reports that several opposition parties have sought a ban on the film and instead asked producer Ssandeep Singh to respond to it.
"We are filmmakers and they are politicians we are doing our job they are doing their job. As far as the propaganda thing is concerned you are journalists you decide when the film releases.

"We are focusing on releasing the film and bringing a true story on the screen than who is saying what or sending letter to whom," Singh said.
Vivek said it took him just 30 seconds to say yes to the film. He added that he got to explore a lot more about Modi after he started working on the project.
"Lot of people thought a film should be made on Narendra Modi as it is a great story but only Ssandeep Singh made it happen. I took me 30 seconds to say yes to the film. My team and director believes I have done justice. I have considered him as an inspiration.
"I felt I know him from the interactions I have had with him as a neutral person. But when I started doing research for the film, I realised that he was never afraid of any difficulties or struggle he was very clear in his vision."
