Actor Vivek Oberoi is set to portray Indian PM Narendra Modi in an upcoming biopic, which will be directed by Omung Kumar. The actor calls it a role of a lifetime, and is ecstatic at this opportunity. “I am extremely fortunate. Today, I am feeling like I felt 16 years ago, during ‘Company’ days. I am feeling the same kind of excitement and hunger because this is a role of a lifetime for any actor. I truly believe at the end of the journey, I pray I become a better actor and a better human being,” he said at the poster launch ceremony.
The official poster of the film based on the life of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was launched by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday. The film’s poster has been launched in 27 languages. Later, the Maharashtra CM also tweeted that the film, “based on the life of world leader born in India”, is set to create history and also called the PM as ‘Raj Yogi’.
The Director of the film Omung Kumar has earlier made films such as Mary Kom and Sarabjit. Actor Suresh Oberoi, Vivek’s father, is co-producing the film along with Sandeep Ssingh.
