Excited to play PM Modi on-screen, Vivek, at the poster launch event, said, “I am extremely fortunate. Today, I am feeling what I felt 16 years ago, during Company days. I am feeling the same kind of excitement and hunger because this is the role of a lifetime for any actor. I pray that at the end of the journey, I become a better actor and a better human being. Narendra Bhai is one of the tallest leaders in the world and to bring his personality and qualities on screen is an incredible challenge. I want all your blessings to complete this incredible journey.”
Director Omung Kumar added that this will be the most challenging project in his career. “To make a film about one of the most prolific leaders in the history of India is challenging,” he said at the event.
