The biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi with the title PM Narendra Modi was earlier expected to be released on April 11, 2019 but was banned from release by the election commission. The makers of the film have now announced that the Vivek Oberoi starrer film will be released in theatres on May 24, 2019 , which is a day after the results of the Lok Sabha Elections will be declared.
The Election Commission in its earlier order in April, 2019 had banned the screening of the film during the poll period saying that any such film that subserves purpose of any political entity or individual must not be displayed in the electronic media. The order from the Election Commission had come a day before the movie was expected to be released.
Sandip Singh the producer of the film said that he hopes that the film will have a smooth run at the theatres. The producer in a statement said, “As a responsible citizen we respect the law of the country. After a lot of discussions and keeping the curiosity and excitement about the film in mind we have decided to release the film immediately after the Lok Sabha election results”.
Singh added that this will be the first time the film will be promoted only for four days.
