PM Narendra Modi to re-release in theatres on October 15
The biopic will be among the first films to be screened in theatres post the lockdown
The makers of PM Narendra Modi (2019) have decided to re-release their film in theatres from next week. Recently, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry of India granted permission to reopen theatres and multiplexes from October 15.
PM Narendra Modi, which stars Vivek Oberoi in the lead, will become one of the first films to be screened in theatres post the lockdown. Directed by Omung Kumar, the biopic was released last year on May 24. It was initially planned to arrive before the general elections, but was stalled by the Election Commission.
Talking about the decision to re-release the film, producer Sandip Ssingh shared, “PM Narendra Modi has been the best Prime Minister of the country, which was proven in the 2019 elections. What can be better than watching the inspiring story of the most inspiring leader of today's times, as theatres re-open. I'm proud to be a part of this historical moment! Moreover, due to some political agendas, when it last released, the film couldn't be watched by many. We're hoping the film gets a fresh life in the theatres and makes for a great watch for the people of the nation.”
Director Omung Kumar said, “It gives me great pleasure and satisfaction that the theatres are going to open again and we are re-releasing our film PM Narendra Modi. We have put in lot of hard work in making this film and so glad that it will be released again and the people who have missed it will get a chance to see it now. We want each and everyone to see our labour of love.”
