Vivek Oberoi; an ator who was missing from action despite delivering performances like Saathiya, Omkara and so many more, was all set to bounce bath with his film, PM NARENDRA MODI, a biopic on our existent Prime Minister, Hon. Narendra Modi!


However; after a lot of back and forth the film was all set to release today, but as banned at the last moment by the Election Commission (EC) yesterday, stating that the film violated the Morale Code of Conduct.


And now; it looks like Vivek is might miffed with the industry folks for not coming out in support of him and his film. Referring to the meeting that a delegation from Bollywood had with PM Modi, which was later posted with a selfie on acclaim filmmaker Karan Johar's Instagram handle, Oberoi said the industry is a highly double standard place.

Powerful and timely conversations can bring about change and this was one of what we hope will become a regular conversation. Meeting the Honorable Prime Minister @narendramodi today was an incredible opportunity. As a community, there is a huge interest to contribute to nation building. There is so much that we want to do. And can do and this dialogue was towards how and what ways we can do that. When the youngest country (in demography) joins hands with the largest movie industry in the world, we hope to be a force to reckon with. Together we would love to inspire and ignite positive changes to a transformative India. The film industry would also like to send a huge thanks for the GST reduction in movie ticket prices that was implemented recently! Thank you so much for your time, Sir!

The Krrish actor was quoted in an interview to Zoom saying,"I feel we are not a united industry. I feel when a Padmaavat gets stuck and a legend like Sanjay Leela Bhansali is mistreated and misbehaved with, we should all unite together. I feel if My Name Is Khan gets stuck, we should come together to make sure it doesn't get stuck. It's easy to post selfies with Prime Minister and stuff like that. As an industry, we need to stand together."



He went on to say," Around 600 artistes right now are saying that BJP shouldn't come back, let's all get together. I respect that, they have all rights to do that. But I also expect from these people, people like Anurag Kashyap, who, during the Udta Punjab's release, which was during the Punjab elections, was fighting for his right to release it and got it released. And I am happy, that is the sign of democracy. But, all these people who are otherwise so vocal on everything, nobody came out in support of our film. This is happening to our film and they trying to ban our film. Not one word, not one tweet. That, to me, is not fair. That is not being honest to their own principle. That is a double standard."


Directed by Omung Kumar; PM Narendra Modi was scheduled to hit the screens on the 11th of April, bus has not been banned until the conclusion of the Lok Sabha Elections of 2019!
