Ridhima Lulla, Chief Content Officer of Eros Group said, ” Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s journey is a remarkable and an aspirational one that needs to be showcased to our global audience. We have known him and seen him as a leader, but there is much more to him that hasn’t come out yet and this is our attempt in that direction. I am sure that like me, billions of people want to know, and will be excited to witness his journey and we, at Eros Now, feel proud to present the story of our incredible leader.”
The director, Umesh Shukla, added, “Prime Minister Modi’s personality enthrals young and old alike. His sense of humour, spirituality and love for technology makes him a unique leader. It was lovely to take on a project which came with a responsibility to narrate the life of the leader of new India and I am sure each episode of the 10-part original series will be a revelation for the audiences. His growing-up years, brave decisions and roles at different phases of life make for an incredible story.”
After Omung Kumar’s biopic PM Narendra Modi, this is the second biopic attempt, though in the digital medium. Omung Kumar’s biopic’s poster was launched in 23 languages by Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis. It stars Vivek Oberoi in the lead role and the film is slated to release after the Lok Sabha elections.
