The trend of making Biopic on legendary personalities of India has been on a high trend in past few years in Bollywood. From making Biopic on legendary sports icon including the likes of Milkha Singh, Mary Kom and Mahendra Singh Dhoni to extraordinary people who made a revolution in the society like Arunachalam Muruganantham, Bollywood has found a successful formula to show the struggles, the hardships and the victory of these legendary personalities to fetch audience into the theatres.

This trend of Biopic has also now ventured into the arena of politics. While we are going to see a biopic on the former Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh on this year December portrayed by the very talented actor Anupam Kher with the movie named The Accidental Prime Minister, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has already started off the preparation of the iconic biopic on the founder of Shiv Sena party Bal Thackeray, where he is going to play the role of Thackeray. The teaser of the movie was released in the month of January and it went viral within moments. And now, if the rumors are true, we are soon going to see a biopic on the current Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi.

While earlier it was reported that Paresh Rawal will be essaying the role of Narendra Modi in his Biopic, according to the latest reports we may see the comeback of the actor turned politician Shatrughan Sinha as on-screen Narendra Modi, a movie produced by Sheetal Talwar.

Well, if rumors get true... let’s see how the war of political parties will be shown on screen.
