Bio-pic on Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi's life directed by Rupesh Paul and produced by Mitesh Patel is put on hold. The shooting will resume after the results now that everyone is sure of Mr. Narendra Modi becoming Prime Minister.
The film will make more sense from CM to PM, rather than making it now. Paresh Rawal who supported and campaigned for Mr. Modi in 2012 Lok Sabha elections is playing the lead.
Mitesh Patel says, "We have kept the film on hold because if Mr Modi becomes the PM then a lot of changes in the script will have to be made. We will take a call on this after the election results are out and I will need to sit down with my scriptwriter, re-work the script and we will incorporate the changes accordingly."
Earlier the bio-pic was shot at a faster pace to give Mr. Modi an election boost for campaigning. However, the producer denies this, "That's not true. I met Mr Modi recently and informed him of the current developments and he said if I release it, it's fine and if I can't, even that's fine. It was my decision to release the film during the elections. Mr Modi is larger than my film. One film won't make a difference in his political career," he smiles.
This film is about the journey of common man to becoming Chief Minister of Gujarat which was at 40 crores budget. Mitesh Patel met Mr. Modi to get the approval before commencing the shoot last year in Gandhinagar.
