The biopic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, PM Narendra Modi, has been pulled ahead by a week and will now release on 5 April.

The news was confirmed by leading film trade analyst Taran Adarsh on his Twitter profile. Directed by veteran biopic-maker Omung Kumar, the feature charts Modi’s journey from him early days to the time he became the country’s PM.A new poster was released with the news of shifts in date. It depicts Vivek in the centre as he adorns a white kurta, much like Modi has often been seen wearing. The PM is surrounded by children in the new poster, who are dressed in the tri-colour. The poster is captioned “Deshbhakti hi mera shakti hai” (serving the country is my power).

As reported earlier, in the wake of the demise of former Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on the evening of 17 March, the makers of Narendra Modi’s biopic postponed the launch of the second poster of the film. Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) President Amit Shah was scheduled to unveil the new poster on Monday in Delhi.

PM Narendra Modi is produced by Sandip Ssingh, Suresh Oberoi, Anand Pandit and Acharya Manish.
