Web series on PM Narendra Modi all set to release in April
After Omung Kumar’s biopic on the life of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, filmmakers Umesh Shukla and Ashish Wagh are coming up with a web series on the PM.
The series titled ‘Modi’ will be out in April this year on Eros Now, coinciding with the 2019 general elections that will be held from April 11 to May 19.
He wrote, “Now a 10-part *web series* on PM Narendra Modi... Eros Now and Benchmark Pictures [Umesh Shukla and Ashish Wagh] to produce the biopic... Titled #Modi... Directed by Umesh Shukla [who directed #OhMyGod and #102NotOut]... Premieres in April 2019 on Eros Now... First look poster.”
The poster shows Indian actor Mahesh Thakur as Modi.
Reportedly, the web series will traverse the journey of Modi’s life from his childhood days to his political career --his years as Chief Minister and finally his landmark election as the Prime Minister. Faisal Khan, Ashish Sharma and Mahesh Thakur will portray the role of Modi at different ages in the series.
Omung Kumar’s film on Modi features Vivek Anand Oberoi playing the role of the prime minister.
