We reached out to a makers of PM Narendra Modi. However, they declined to comment.
Vivek Oberoi had oral about a film during a trailer’s launch. He had said, “Destiny works in puzzling ways. Everybody has a proviso where they struggle. we have struggled too, though while operative on this film, we realised my onslaught is nothing. The onslaught that Narendra Modiji has left through, my onslaught is nothing. we was intimidated as we am portraying a domestic figure who is desired by a whole nation.”
