The Indian National Congress had earlier urged the EC to stop the release of PM Narendra Modi’s biopic on grounds that it violated the model code of conduct and that it was deliberately trying to turn the audience in BJP’s favor with the movie’s release just before the 2019 elections. However, it seems after the latest breakthrough, the EC is set to turn down Congress’s appeal.
The movie, which is based on Narendra Modi’s life, portraying his journey from humble beginnings to becoming the Prime Minister of India. The film which was originally scheduled to release on 5th April has been directed by Omung Kumar.
