Director Omung Kumar Spoke About Controversies Around His Upcoming Film ‘Narendra Modi’

The makers of the film Narendra Modi received a lot of flak for planning to release the movie on April 12, which is the day of voting for the Lok Sabha Elections. The film is now set to release on April 5, as it violates model code of conduct.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi director Omung Kumar says he expected the biopic to be subjected to opposition, but the negativity around the film does not disturb him.

Omung Kumar further added, “I have blinkers. I don’t look at what is happening or what people are saying. It is for producers to look into it. I don’t let it bother me. When we took it on, we knew it is a big film and people were going to talk about it, irrespective of whether we release the film during elections or not”.


We knew people will oppose it in some way. So I am not shaken and disturbed. I am not bothered about the trolls, there are people who are liking it some are not, “Omung told PTI in an interview.

The director of the film said, that the film is an inspiring story. “It is the story of a ‘chaiwala’ who became the prime minister of India. It is an inspiring story. It is about inspiring people to do something. I am not looking at votes or anything,” he added.

Omung said he is not politically inclined person and his aim is always to do justice to the subject.


“It is somebody’s life story, so you tread carefully, but that doesn’t mean you hide things, as in a biopic, you need to show the struggles of the person for him or her to emerge victorious,” “For me, it is important to present things as it is. I am not a politically inclined person. For me the story is the hero. I focus on doing justice to the story, screenplay,” he said.

“There are documentaries on him but no one has shown his journey in a two hour film so there will be surprises. I tried to dig out stuff and join the dots and make a storyline from his journey. I have been neutral.

Also starring Boman Irani, Manoj Joshi, Zarina Wahab and Prashant Narayanan, the film is produced by Sandip Ssingh and Suresh Oberoi.
