We all know how the upcoming biopic on Narendra Modi starring Vivek Anand Oberoi as lead and helmed by Omung Kumar has been a hot topic for the news makers and the news consumers in recent times.
The film has been facing criticism since the time of it’s announcement. While some questioned the cast, some trolled Omung Kumar for being at the helm of things for this project.
Very recently it erupted another controversy after Javed Akhtar & Sameer Anjaan expressed some serious shock after they saw their names in the credits of the poster.
Javed Akhtar in particular was the one who came out open to Twitter to claim that he didn’t write any song in the film.
Later however the producer Ssandip Singh clarified to the world that Javed Akhtar and Sameer Anjaan have been given due credits because they have taken two of their songs in the movie. This henceforth died a natural death.
But the latest controversy surrounding the film now is that an activist has filed an FIR against the film citing propaganda and questioning the release timing of the film.
The movie is slated to release on April 5 2019 which is just a few days before the Elections roll in from April 11.
Earlier too the Congress had questioned the timing and the content of the movie and now we believe the FIR only strengthens the opposition’s claims.
So is everything a propaganda indeed or just a coincidence? We all seem to know the answer to this but the bigger question boiling now would surely be,
‘ What after this? ‘
