Vivek Oberoi calls himself extremely fortunate on being part of PM Narendra Modi’s biopic
Bollywood as an industry is always looking to reinvent itself. Over the last 7-8 years, we have seen Hindi film industry gravitating towards the biopic genre. Recently, we have seen how Anupam Kher and Nawazuddin Siddiqui have taken the challenging roles of Manmohan Singh and late Bal Thackeray respectively in their upcoming biopics.
Vivek Oberoi is mostly known for his ‘Masti’ franchise and according to many experts has not used his potential to the fullest. The son of veteran actor Suresh Oberoi will now be portraying the character of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his biopic. Yesterday (January 7), the film’s first poster was unveiled and Vivek was looking unrecognisable in the said poster.
Now, the actor in a recent interview has described his experience on playing the role of PM Modi. Talking about being a part of this biopic, Vivek said, “I am extremely fortunate. Today, I am feeling like 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 truly believe at the end of the journey, I pray I become a better actor and a better human being.”
Vivek also called PM Modi one of the tallest leaders of the world and to play him on screen would be an incredible challenge. The biopic is being directed by Omung Kumar.
Interestingly, if the buzz is anything to go by then Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Lok Sabha MP and actor Paresh Rawal is also doing a biopic based on Narendra Modi’s life.
