Playing PM Narendra Modi on a big screen is just not easy. It looks like Bollywood superstar is all set to play Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an upcoming film. While we are all excited for PM Narendra Modi biopic.
If recent reports are to be believed then, Akshay Kumar may play the role of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his biopic. Reportedly, Paresh Rawal, Anupam Kher and even Victor Banerjee were earlier considered to play the role of Narendra Modi. However, there has been no official confirmation regarding it. Even BJP politician Shatrughan Sinha and Censor Board Chief Pahlaj Nihlani are rooting for Akshay.
A source close to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is quoted as saying in DNA, “The kind of reach and impact that Akshay Kumar’s presence will have in a story on Modi would be far-reaching and productive.”
Chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification, Pahlaj Nihalani, added, “I can’t think of anyone better to play our Prime Minster than Akshay. He has a spotless image of an idealist and visionary. And look at the kind of work he’s doing. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Padman are the cinema of social reform that Guru Dutt and V Shantaram were associated with. Also, Akshay has risen from humble working class beginnings to become a national star, just like Modiji. We are certainly looking at a strong possibility of Akshay playing Modiji.”
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar will be seen in two upcoming films- Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, which will hit screens on August 11 and ‘Padman’, which stars Sonam Kapoor.
