The PM Modi biopic has remained in the controversy ever since it was surfaced in the media The Vivek Oberoi who tried to make a comeback capitalizing on the popularity of Modi has failed this time as the Election Commission has put a ban on its screening during the election season. The film somewhere remained the propaganda movie, which as per the EC was against the code of conduct of the Elections in India. So, with all hue and cry, the makers were able to release the film on 24th May just after the elections are over and the results are declared.
However, the makers kept on denying that the film promotes Modi and his party and would, therefore, influence the voters but opposition party agitating with some genuine reasons has made things worse for the makers. Though the film enjoyed too much of publicity and special treatment from the Censor Board as well getting the certificate in just a week when people agitated how a film gets the U certificate without submitting it for not less 60 days before its release.
On the other side, the makers claim that they earlier had plans to release in the later stage but the constant growing pressure from the people to release it earlier had made them to prepone the timing. No wonder how they managed to bring out the trailer in no time and soon announced the date right on the very first day of the Elections keeping things suspicious. This led the opposition to make it an issue and the Election Commission has to intervene. The film has Vivek Oberoi in the lead role playing Modi, while his father has produced the film.
