Ace Bollywood filmmaker Omung Kumar, who made national award-winning film Mary Kom, Sarbjit and Bhoomi, has been confirmed for the biopic on most celebrated Indian politician and Prime Minister of the country, Narendra Modi. The life of Modi, a Chaiwala from Gujarat who stood up against all odds and became the Prime Minister of India, will be shown in the movie. This announcement was made by noted film critic Taran Adarsh a little while ago.
So, who will play the role of Narendra Modi? - it's none other than Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi, who featured as Paritala Ravi in RGV's Raktha Charitra. The actor, who will be next seen in Ram Charan's Vinaya Vidheya Rama, is yet to comment about it. The film critic Taran Adarsh has taken him to Twitter saying: "IT’S OFFICIAL... Vivekanand Oberoi [Vivek Oberoi] to star in Narendra Modi biopic, titled #PMNarendraModi... Directed by Omung Kumar... Produced by Sandip Singh... First look poster will be launched on 7 Jan 2019... Filming starts mid-Jan 2019."
Besides biopic on Modi, biopics on the great politicians which are in the making are NTR's biopic (Kathanayakudu and Mahanayakudu), YSR's biopic (Yatra) and 'The Accidental Prime Minister' on former PM Manmohan Singh.
