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 prime minister’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.
Earlier, Vivek Oberoi released the first look poster of his film ‘PM Narendra Modi’. The first look poster was launched in 23 languages.
Omung Kumar, who has directed the National Award winning film ‘Mary Kom’, is directing the film while Suresh Oberoi and Sandip Ssingh are the producers. The film is expected to release before 2019 elections.
