The makers of PM Narendra Modi on Monday released yet another image, giving a sneak peek into the different looks of Vivek Oberoi in the biopic.
The poster was shared by film trade analyst Taran Adarsh on Twitter. He wrote, “Vivek Anand Oberoi’s different looks in the biopic #PMNarendraModi… Directed by Omung Kumar… Produced by Sandip Ssingh, Suresh Oberoi and Anand Pandit.”
“Vivek Anand Oberoi gets up at 2.30 am each day. It takes up to 7 to 8 hours to apply makeup, and he is on the set by 8 am ready to shoot. Due to prosthetics, the actor can only consume liquids throughout the duration of the shoot (in a day),” a source revealed.
“On the sets of the film, Vivek Oberoi’s transformation was so complete that he behaved like the character even when the camera was not on. So startling and complete was his physical and emotional transformation that members of the unit were taken aback.” the source added.
“I wanted a versatile actor to play this role. Vivek made an unconventional debut with Company and also gave Saathiya in the same year. I wanted the actor to give me one year of his life before the shoot begins because the films range from the year 1957 to 2019 in order to understand the journey. Vivek gave 15 look tests that needed 7-8 hours of make up each day. When an actor shows this dedication for the film, the filmmaker and the whole crew is extremely enthusiastic and encouraged to make the film,” PM Narendra Modi producer Sandip Ssingh said.
Earlier this year, Vivek Oberoi had expressed how fortunate he feels to be part of the project. The actor said he is feeling the same kind of excitement that he felt 16 years ago.
“Today, I am feeling what I felt 16 years ago, during Company days. I am feeling the same kind of excitement and hunger because this is the role of a lifetime for any actor. I pray that at the end of the journey, I become a better actor and a better human being. Narendra Bhai is one of the tallest leaders in the world and to bring his personality and qualities on screen is an incredible challenge. I want all your blessings to complete this incredible journey,” Vivek said at the poster launch of PM Narendra Modi that took place in January this year.
Apart from Vivek Oberoi, PM Narendra Modi boasts of an ensemble cast including Boman Irani, Manoj Joshi, Barkha Bisht, Zarina Wahab, Darshan Rawal, Akshat R Saluja, Anjan Shrivastav, Rajendra Gupta and Yatin Karyekar.
