2019 is the year of the election. The general elections of 2014 saw the change of government and this year’s polls are just around the corner. It seems like the movie industry has also accepted Politics as the new genre for 2019. We just saw the trailer of The Accidental Prime Minister which is based on the life of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and it has already started the controversy. Then there is Thackrey based on the late Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray. Now, there is a new announcement of a political drama. It is based on the present Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. The film’s first poster was released on January 7. Can you guess who is playing the PM? Imagine Vivek Oberoi as Modi!
Yes, guys, it’s Vivek Oberoi. Tough to imagine him as Modi, right? But you know how Nawazuddin Siddiqui is looking so apt in the Thackeray. That’s how the makeover has done but not in the case of Vivek. The poster of the movie has the image of PM Narendra Modi which is played by Vivek Oberoi. The film will be directed by Omung Kumar, who has earlier directed biopics like Sarabjit and Mary Kom.
Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis released the poster at South Mumbai’s Garware Club House in 23 languages. Well, BJP seems very happy on the announcement!
Launched the official poster of film #PMNarendraModi in 23 languages with @sureshoberoi ji, @vivekoberoi , @OmungKumar , Sandeep Singh in Mumbai.

Since the poster has been unveiled, Netizens can’t help but laugh over the non-similarity between Vivek and PM Modi. This is how the Twitterati reacted:
.@vivekoberoi is unrecognisable in the poster of #NarendraModi biopic. I mean it. I don’t know who he is looking like, but I’m sure he isn’t anywhere close to what #Modi looks. Hai kaun yeh! #PMNarendraModi pic.twitter.com/Ama3SDcqNO

Vivek Oberoi to play #PMNarendraModi in his biopic
This is the same guy who compared his character in Krrish 3 with The Legendary JOKER
I would rather waste 2 hours watching Arnab Goswami screaming on TV (on MUTE) instead of paying & watching Vivek Oberoi’s mockery pic.twitter.com/BDVyUppoUj

This man looks more like Modi, than Vivek Oberoi with that prosthetic nose and all the make up. pic.twitter.com/rGfCrwJf5w

We also feel that Vivek is not looking much like Modi but how would he actually play the character is yet to be found out. The release date is yet not announced. Let’s wait and watch till the movie finally comes out. Meanwhile, you tell us about your views about the poster.
