Omar Abdullah Ridicules Vivek Oberoi For Playing PM Modi in Upcoming Biopic

Published

The upcoming biopic on Indian PM Narendra Modi has got the Twitter buzzing. Omar Abdullah, former J&K CM in his tweet, said Former Indian PM, Dr Manmohan Singh was played by noted actor, Anupam Kher, but PM Modi had to settle for Vivek Oberoi to play the role. And what followed were a series of hilarious tweets.

Meanwhile, undeterred by reports of a parallel film on Narendra Modi, actor and BJP MP Paresh Rawal says he is going ahead with a biopic on the Modi’s life and believes it will be the most challenging role of his career.

Actor Vivek Oberoi recently announced a film on Modi that will be produced by his father Suresh Oberoi. But that doesn’t seem to have derailed Rawal’s plan for his version of the Modi story that will see him in the role of the prime minister and will also be produced by him.

It is the most challenging role of my career till date. I have a hunger for good roles. I want to be challenged and I am looking forward to this experience. We will start work this year itself,” Rawal, who is also producing the film, told PTI in an interview.

The actor said the film is very much in development but did face some hurdles at the script and financial level. “We are stuck at the script level and bit on the financial, production levels. I am producing it. We are going to do it, 100 per cent. I am playing Modi, the BJP MP from Ahmedabad East said.

Rawal said he has not seen Vivek’s much discussed look from the movie, which will be directed by Omung Kumar and is yet to go on floors. “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, the actor said.
