Akshay Kumar to play PM Narendra Modi?


After making a film ‘Toilet-Ek Prem Katha’ inspired from PM Narendra Modi’s ‘Swach Bharat Abhigyan’, Akshay Kumar is all set to play the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

According to a report in DNA, actors like Paresh Rawal, Anupam Kher and Victor Banerjee were the top contenders to enact the role of PM on-screen but Akshay Kumar has been emerged as the clear winner.

A source close to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is quoted as saying, "The kind of reach and impact that Akshay Kumar's presence will have in a story on Modi would be far-reaching and productive."

Actor and BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha thinks that the actor will be the apt choice to play PM Modi. He told the daily, "Akshay is the Mr Clean of India. His image goes well with the image of the New Shining India."

Chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification, Pahlaj Nihalani also backed Akshay Kumar, "I can't think of anyone better to play our Prime Minster than Akshay. He has a spotless image of an idealist and visionary. And look at the kind of work he's doing. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Padman are the cinema of social reform that Guru Dutt and V Shantaram were associated with. Also, Akshay has risen from humble working class beginnings to become a national star, just like Modiji. We are certainly looking at a strong possibility of Akshay playing Modiji."

Akshay Kumar, who is gearing up for the release of Toilet-Ek Prem Katha’ met PM Modi lately and informed him about the concept of his upcoming film. PM Modi was quite impressed.

Akshay Kumar tweeted about his meeting with Modji#Met PM @narendramodi and got the opportunity to tell him about my upcoming 'Toilet-Ek Prem Katha.' His smile at just the title made my day!
