First look: Zarina Wahab as Narendra Modi’s mother and Barkha Bisht as his wife
Just a few days back, we told you that Manoj Joshi is playing the role of Amit Shah in ‘PM Narendra Modi’ biopic. If that was not enough, we have now learnt that veteran actress Zarina Wahab will be playing the role of his mother Heeraben Modi in the film while television actress Barkha Bisht will be his wife Jashodaben in the film.
The Prime Minister has always said in his speeches that his mother is one of the major support systems of his life. Even though he is busy with his national duties, he always makes sure to visit her and take care of her in every possible way.
Talking about the same, producer Sandip Ssingh shared, “These two characters were one of the most crucial ones in the film. I am glad that Zarina Ji agreed on doing it as no one other than her could have done a better job. Barkha is playing his wife and she is doing a great job. I am happy to have such a powerful and talented cast for this film.”
About the role, Zarina Wahab said, “It’s an honour to play the role of the mother of Honourable Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi. This is going to be one of the most special roles I have ever played. I hope the audiences like it.”
Talking about her role, Barkha Bisht said, “I am grateful to Mr Sandip Ssingh for giving me an opportunity to be a part of such an amazing film. I had a great experience working with him earlier in ‘Ram Leela’ and I know playing Jashodaben is going to be interesting too.”
The makers unveiled the first look and poster of the film in January in 23 languages. ‘PM Narendra Modi’ will traverse the journey of Narendra Damodardas Modi from his humble beginnings to finally being nominated as the Prime Minister of India.
The film is directed by biopic maestro Omung Kumar, and comprises an ensemble cast with Vivek Oberoi playing the lead character.
