Even though Vivek Anand Oberoi has announced a biopic on PM Narendra Modi that is produced by his father Suresh Oberoi and directed by ace director Omung Kumar; the news has not deterred the extremely talented Narendra Modi from coming up with his own version of Modi's biopic. 


Even though Paresh Rawal had confirmed a film on the Prime Minister back in 2017, nothing had been heard of the film since. But, the ‘Oh My God' actor in an exclusive chat with a leading daily has revealed," We are stuck at the script level and a bit on the financial, production levels. I am producing it. We are going to do it, 100 percent. I am playing Modi."


The actor further went on to say," It (biopic) is all about getting closer to the real person. The basics are the same, white hair, beard, and spectacles. (But) For me, it is about capturing his eyes, his anguish and the burning desire to take the country forward, his hatred for corrupt people. All this should reflect in the character."

However, Twitterati has not been very appreciative of Vivek's look and though the actor is almost unrecognizable in the poster; the poster has faced a major backlash.


He further added," "What I can do with that film, nobody else can. Let anybody do what they want to, we are also coming out soon."


On the professional front; Paresh Rawal will be seen in Uri and going by the looks of his character, looks like Rawal will be playing the role of National Security Advisor Ajit Doval.
