Back in June 2018, while promoting his film Sanju, actor Paresh Rawal had said that he would be taking up the challenging task of playing Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a forthcoming biopic. Rawal had commented in an interview to The Indian Express that his team was in the process of locking the script and was planning to shoot the film from October. It was widely believed that if a biopic on the present PM was to be made, Modi’s role would be played by Paresh Rawal who is not only a BJP MP but is also a huge admirer of the PM.

The announcement of Vivek Oberoi’s name as the actor who would be playing Modi in his biopic therefore came as a huge surprise.
