Paresh Rawal all set to play PM Narendra Modi in a biopic

Veteran actor Paresh Rawal will enact the role of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a biopic. The film will be reportedly produced by the actor himself. The shooting of the film will start from August, as per the latest report. This would be Paresh Rawal’s second production after ‘OMG’! Oh My God.

Paresh Rawal feels it is a huge responsibility to play the honourable prime minister of India. He will do extensive research to learn about his body language, speech delivery etc. "I will start shooting the Narendra Modi biopic from August. It's a massive responsibility being an actor to portray a leader of such great stature. He knows that I am playing him in his biopic," Rawal told reporters here.

Paresh Rawal, who is looking forward to the release of his next project, ‘Dharam Sankat Mein’ said that he will not mimic the PM. "Like the way I did during my stint in playing Sardar Patel in the film Sardar, here also I have to do loads of photo reading and listen to his speeches. But I will not mimic him. I will try to capture his spirit. I know very well that I can never look like PM Modi".

In ‘Dharam Sankat Mein’ is sharing screen space with veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah, whom he considers his inspiration.

"It's always a joyride to work with him. It's a learning process for me. He is not only a good actor but also a good human being. I want to have timeless, truth and depth-like Naseer bhai in my career. He has always been my inspiration," he said.

The National award winner actor will be seen next in ‘Hera Pheri 3’ and ‘Oh My God! 2’.
