Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump discussed prospects for increasing cooperation in Afghanistan, the India-US strategic partnership, trade deficit, cooperation in defence, and security issues in a telephonic conversation late Monday, according to statements from the two countries. Amidst the horde of outings, The Accidental Prime Minister starring Anupam Kher and PM Narendra Modi starring Vivek Oberoi, are the ones that are grabbing eyeballs for their political content.

Omung Kumar, the director said, "This is one of the most hard and challenging role that I will be playing in my career, because to direct a film-the biopic of a man who is one of the prolific leaders in the history of India-is the most challenging thing a director could do". Directed by Omung Kumar. The biopic will be directed by Omung Kumar, who has films such as Mary Kom and Sarbjit to his credit.

Oberoi who can be seen in the film poster, tweeted: Jai Hind We humbly ask for your prayers and blessings on this incredible journey. The actor looks completely unrecognisable in the poster, which features him in the titular role.


The film shooting is expected to kickstart soon in January.

Coming to 2019, there are some exciting movies to watch out for. The actor believes that Modi's life has enough substance for it to be a source for several films. The first look of the film and Vivek Oberoi as PM was launched at an event in Mumbai today in presence of Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis. Gauging the social media reaction, too, audiences have largely not liked Vivek's portrayal of PM Narendra Modi. Who do you think is the best suited for this role?
