Which star can play PM Narendra Modi better on the big screen? Read below to know who is the first choice from Bollywood.
Already up with guesses? Well, playing Modi on a big screen is just not easy. According to reports, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is the first choice to play PM Narendra Modi in an upcoming film. Yes, not Paresh Rawal, Anupam Kher or Victor Banerjee, but Akshay Kumar might play the role of Prime Minister on the big screen. However, there has been no official confirmation regarding it.
A source close to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is quoted as saying in DNA, “The kind of reach and impact that Akshay Kumar’s presence will have in a story on Modi would be far-reaching and productive.”
Chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification, Pahlaj Nihalani, added, “I can’t think of anyone better to play our Prime Minster than Akshay. He has a spotless image of an idealist and visionary. And look at the kind of work he’s doing. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Padman are the cinema of social reform that Guru Dutt and V Shantaram were associated with. Also, Akshay has risen from humble working class beginnings to become a national star, just like Modiji. We are certainly looking at a strong possibility of Akshay playing Modiji.”
Well, Akshay is the first choice of every person from BJP. Actor and BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha also thinks that Akshay will be the right choice to play PM Modi. He told the daily, “Akshay is the Mr Clean of India. His image goes well with the image of the New Shining India.”
