PM Narendra Modi's biopic to be the first film to release in cinemas after lockdown
Mumbai : PM Narendra Modi, a biopic on the prime minister that stars Vivek Oberoi in the titular role, will re-release in cinemas on October 15. It will be the first movie that will be released in theaters since lockdown was imposed in the nation.
The Centre had allowed reopening of cinema halls in the Unlock 5 guidelines. They have also issued standard operating procedures (SOPs) that have to be followed by cinema halls before starting their business again.
The movie was first released in theaters in May last year, but had failed to do much on the Box Office.
Producer Sandip Ssingh wrote on Instagram: "PM Narendra Modi has been the best Prime minister of the country, which was proven in the 2019 elections. What can be better than watching the inspiring story of the most inspiring leader of today's times, as theatres re-open."
"I'm proud to be a part of this historical moment! Moreover, due to some political agendas, when it last released, the film couldn't be watched by many. We're hoping the film gets a fresh life in the theatres and makes for a great watch for the people of the nation," he added.
The movie traces PM Modi's journey in politics. The film shows Narendra Modi's journey from his early days in the RSS to his rise as the chief minister of Gujarat and finally as the Prime Minister of India.
