The film, on the life of incumbent prime minister Narendra Modi, was stopped just a night before its worldwide release on April 11 when the parliamentary polls kicked off
The release of PM Narendra Modi, which was postponed due to the ongoing Parliamentary Elections, is now scheduled on May 24, a day after the Lok Sabha Election results are announced.
The film, on the life of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was stopped just a night before its worldwide release on April 11 when the parliamentary polls kicked off.
The Election Commission said that any material which disturbs a level playing field should not be allowed.
In a statement, announcing the release date, producer Sandip Ssingh said, "As a responsible citizen, we respect the law of the country. After a lot of discussions and given the curiosity and excitement about the film, we have decided to release the film immediately after the Lok Sabha Election results (to be announced on May 23)."
"I hope now nobody will have any problem with the film and we are hoping for a smooth release," he added.
The film has actor Vivek Oberoi playing Modi, and other cast members include Boman Irani, Manoj Joshi, Zarina Wahab, and Anjan Shrivastav among others.
Directed by Omung Kumar B, and co-produced by Ssingh, Suresh Oberoi and Anand Pandit, the film will traverse the journey of Modi from his humble beginnings to becoming the Prime Minister of India.
