‘PM Narendra Modi’ biopic, starring Vivek Anand Oberoi as Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is all set for a big screen re-release once cinemas re-open on October 15.

As per the recent guidelines from the central government, cinema halls and multiplexes across the country can reopen with 50 per cent seating capacity.


Directed by Omung Kumar, the film, which released in 2019, traces the journey of Narendra Damodardas Modi from his beginnings to his years as Chief Minister of Gujarat onto winning the 2014 Lok Sabha elections to become the Prime Minister of India.


The film which courted controversy during its original release in 2019, has Twitter churn out some hilarious reactions.

Scores of netizens commented on the news stating it is a good idea to keep the cinema halls empty amid an ongoing pandemic.

"It gives me great pleasure and satisfaction that the theatres are going to open again and we are re-releasing our film 'PM Narendra Modi'. We have put in a lot of hard work in making this film and so glad that it will be released again and the people who have missed it will get a chance to see it now. We want each and every one to see our labour of love," said Omung Kumar.

The film also stars Boman Irani, Darshan Kumaar, Manoj Joshi, Prashant Narayanan, Zarina Wahab, Barkha Bisht Sengupta, Anjan Shrivastav, Yatin Karyekar, Rajendra Gupta, and Akshat R. Saluja.

"What can be better than watching the story of the most inspiring leader of today's times, as theatres reopen. I'm proud to be a part of this historical moment! Moreover, due to certain political agendas, when it released, the film couldn't be watched by many," claimed co-producer Sandip Ssingh.

Co-producer Acharya Manish said he is happy that he got a chance to start his journey in film production with such an inspiring project.
