New Delhi, India: A biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi titled ‘PM Narendra Modi’ was earlier set to release on April 11, but was banned by the Election Commission.
The filmmakers of Vivek Oberoi starring film ‘PM Narendra Modi’, a biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Friday announced that the film will be released countrywide on May 24.
The results of the national elections will be announced on May 23 and the film is finally being released a day after the results of the Lok Sabha elections will be declared.
The film was earlier set to release on April 11 but was banned by the Election Commission.
The EC had ordered last month a ban on the screening of the film during the poll period, saying any such film that serves any political entity or individual should not be displayed in any electronic media.
The EC order had come a day before the movie was to be released.
Producer Sandip Singh said he hopes the film will have a smooth run in the theatres.
“As a responsible citizen we respect the law of the country. After a lot of discussions and keeping the curiosity and excitement about the film in mind we have decided to release the film immediately after the Lok Sabha election results,” Singh said in a statement.
“We are now releasing our film on 24th May 2019. This is the first time a film will be promoted for only four days. I hope now nobody has any problem with the film and we are hoping for the smooth release this time,” he added.
Directed by Omung Kumar, the film also features Boman Irani, Manoj Joshi, Prashant Narayanan, Zarina Wahab, Barkha Sengupta and Darshan Kumaar, among others.
Suresh Oberoi and Anand Pandit are co-producers of the film.
