A biopic on the Prime Minister Narendra Modi will re-release in cinemas on October 15. The movie stars Vivek Oberoi in the titular role and it will be the first film to hit theatres post the lockdown.
The Information and Broadcasting Ministry gave its green signal for theaters to reopen from this Thursday under Unlock 5 and have also issued standard operating procedures (SOPs) that have to be followed by cinema halls before starting.
PM Narendra Modi was initially released in May last year. Announcing the re-release date of the biopic, producer Sandip Ssingh posted the poster on Instagram writing, "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," he added.
