Vivek Oberoi starrer PM Narendra Modi, a biopic on the Prime Minister of India, will be the first film to hit the theatres after the cinema halls reopen. The film will re-release on October 15. PM Narendra Modi traces the journey of Narendra Modi from his humble beginnings to becoming the Prime Minister of India.
Directed by Omung Kumar, the film stars Vivek Oberoi in the lead role along with Boman Irani, Darshan Kumaar, Manoj Joshi, Prashant Narayana. Zarina Wahab, Barkha Bisht Sengupta, Anjan Shrivastav, Yatin Karyekar, Rajendra Gupta and Akshat R Saluja in pivotal roles.
The film first released on May 24, 2019. Producer Ssandip Singh feels the last time the film released in the theatres, it fell prey to political agendas and not many could watch the film. He hopes this time PM Narendra Modi fares well in the theatres.
Talking about the decision to re-release the biopic, Singh said, “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.”
Earlier this week, Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar announced the standard operating procedures (SOPs) that cinema halls must put in place before they open on October 15 after seven months of being closed.
The SOPs include one seat distance in theatres, 50 per cent capacity, masks at all time, proper ventilation, and air conditioner temperature settings at above 23 degrees Celsius.
