2019 has been a year of interesting political biopics. After 'Accidental Prime Minister' and 'Thackeray', Eros Now and Benchmark Pictures have now collaborated to produce a 10-part biopic web series on the life of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Titled 'Modi', the project is being helmed by filmmaker Umesh Shukla, who has previously directed critically acclaimed ventures like 'Oh My God' and '102 Not Out'. It is all set to premiere on Eros Now in April.
On Tuesday, March 26, makers unveiled the trailer of the upcoming biopic web-series 'Modi' and it looks promising from the very first visuals. 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. As the trailer shows, the series will feature the Indian Prime Minister's life in 3 phases. While actor Mahesh Thakur will portray the current PM, Ashish Sharma will represent him in his youth and Faizal Khan will bring on screen his boyhood days.
Right from the days of him selling tea in his boyhood to finally joining getting into active politics, the trailer explores intriguing details of the life of the Indian Prime Minister. With a change of roles, age and appearance, the one thing which appears to be constant is his love for the country.
Sharing the trailer on Twitter, Eros Now announced, "The journey of this common man will truly inspire you! Here’s presenting the official trailer of #ErosNowOriginal series, #Modi."
Meanwhile, netizens seem to be very much impressed by the gripping trailer as they have praised the upcoming venture widely on social media. They have especially hailed actor Ashish Sharma's performance in the 'Modi' web-series.
