After the 'PM Narendra Modi' biopic, Eros Now's 'Modi' web-series based on the life of the Indian Prime Minister came under the radar of Election commission.

It follows the journey of PM Modi from his humble beginnings to his years as Chief Minister onto his landmark win at the 2014 election and finally being nominated as the Prime Minister of India. It covers all the highs and lows of the life of the country chief.
