It's raining biopics in Bollywood. After Manto, Sanju and Padman, gear up for another biopic and that too on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Bhoomi fame Omung Kumar is all set to helm a biopic on PM Modi, in which Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi will play the lead role. The movie will go on floors in mid-January. Omung has earlier directed biographical dramas such as Sarbjit and Mary Kom.
First look of Narendra Modi biopic will be out on January 7. The poster of the movie will reportedly be unveiled by Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis. Along with the poster in 23 different languages, makers are also expected to announce the release date of the film.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared details of the movie on Twitter. He wrote, ''IT’S OFFICIAL... Vivekanand Oberoi (Vivek Oberoi) to star in Narendra Modi biopic, titled #PMNarendraModi... Directed by Omung Kumar... Produced by Sandip Ssingh... First look poster will be launched on 7 Jan 2019... Filming starts mid-Jan 2019.''
The team got the permissions to go ahead with the film just a few weeks ago. The shooting will be extensively done in Gujarat apart from other states. Vivek Oberoi is attending workshops along with trying distinct looks.
Omung Kumar's last film Bhoomi tanked at the box office. It featured Aditi Rao Hydari and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles.
