Akshay Kumar as PM Narendra Modi? Shatrughan Sinha thinks he fits the bill perfectly

Well, if reports are to be believed, then this is going to be huge. The biopic of current prime minister Narendra Modi has been a topic of discussion for a long time now. Names like Paresh Rawal and Anupam Kher had been popping up too, and while the former had openly expressed his desire to play Modi, the latter is already playing the role of Dr Manmohan Singh in an upcoming movie. So now, if rumours that are floating around in the current political scenario are to be believed then the general sentiment is going in favour of Akshay Kumar.

Veteran actor and now a member of the ruling party BJP, Shatrughan Sinha, openly stated the fact when he said, “Mr Akshay Kumar is the Mr Clean of India. His image goes well with the image of the New Shining India.”

Not just this, a source from inside the political circles, too stated, “But the kind of reach and impact that Akshay Kumar’s presence would have in a story on Narendra Modi would be far-reaching and very, very productive.” (Also Read: ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’: PM Narendra Modi watches the trailer, lauds Akshay Kumar’s effort)

“It would certainly make for a fabulous biopic on the visionary Prime minister who has changed the fortunes of our nation and built a global image of progress and development. Yes, we would certainly like Akshay Kumar to play Narendra Modi,” adds the source.

Not just Shatrughan Sinha, CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani, who is known to be quite sanskari with his snipping scissors, too feels that Akshay is a great choice for the role. He says, “I can’t think of anyone better than Akshay Kumar to play our Prime Minster Narendra Modiji. 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 very strong possibilities of Akshay playing Modiji.”

Let’s see what materialises and if we will really get to see Akshay as PM Narendra Modi, on celluloid.
