Modi Biopic Gets 'U' Certificate From Censor Board, To Release On 11 April

'PM Narendra Modi' will release on 11 April, which is also the first phase of the Lok Sabha polls.


The biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been granted a ‘U’ certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and will release on 11 April. Movie critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed the news: 

PM Narendra Modi’s producer Sandip Ssingh announced that the film, featuring Vivek Oberoi in the lead, will release on 11 April after the Supreme Court verdict on Tuesday. 

The apex court dismissed a petition filed by a Congress activist seeking stay on the release of PM Narendra Modi, saying the Election Commission would be an “appropriate” place to seek the redressal.

The film, directed by Omung Kumar, has been criticised by the opposition parties, who claim that the biopic could give undue advantage to the BJP in the polls as it will arrive in theatres before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The first phase of Lok Sabha polls is 11 April.
