‘PM Narendra Modi’: Vivek Oberoi’s varied looks from the biopic will leave you awestruck!
Vivek Oberoi‘s 9 looks from the film ‘PM Narendra Modi’ is out now. These different looks depict the phases, struggles and passion of the common man. This film will traverse the journey of Narendra Damodardas Modi from his humble beginnings to becoming the Prime Minister of India.
A source close to the movie says, “Vivek Oberoi gets up at 2.30am in the morning each day, goes under the process of 7 to 8 hours of make up and is on the set by 8 am ready to shoot. Due to prosthetics, the actor can only consume liquids throughout the duration of the shoot (in a day). On the sets of the film, Mr. Oberoi’s transformation is so complete that he behaved like the character even when the camera was not on. So startling and complete was his physical and emotional transformation that members of the unit were taken aback.”

Producer Sandip Singh says, “I wanted a versatile actor to play this role, Vivek made an unconventional debut with ‘Company’ and also gave ‘Saathiya’ in the same year. I wanted the actor to give me one year of his life before the shoot begins because the films range from the year 1957 to 2019. Vivek gave 15 look tests that needed 7-8 hours of make up each day. When an actor shows this dedication for the film, the filmmaker and the whole crew is extremely enthusiastic and encouraged to make the film.”
The film has other actors like Boman Irani, Manoj Joshi, Prashant Narayanan, Zarina Wahab, Barkha Sengupta, Anjan Shrivastav, Yatin Karyekar, Rajendra Gupta, Akshat R Saluja, Jimesh Patel and Darshan Kumaar in important roles.
The film is directed by biopic maestro Omung Kumar and is slated to release amidst the elections on April 12.
