Story highlights

Directed by Umesh Shukla who has in the past made films like 'OMG Oh My God' and '102 Not Out', the web series will showcase Modi's life from childhood to his journey of becoming the Prime Minister of India.

The trailer of 'PM Narendra Modi' was launched just a week ago. The biopic, featuring Vivek Oberoi in the titular role has been under scrutiny ever since the project was announced. Now, close on the heels of the film's trailer, OTT platform and production house Eros Now has launched the trailer of the web series 'Modi'. 

Directed by Umesh Shukla who has in the past made films like 'OMG Oh My God' and '102 Not Out', the web series will showcase Modi's life from childhood to his journey of becoming the Prime Minister of India. The trailer features actors Mahesh Thakur, Faisal Khan and Ashish Sharma playing PM Modi in different phases of his life. Watch the trailer here. 

Earlier while speaking about the project to a daily, Shukla had said, "Prime Minister Modi’s personality enthralls young and old alike. His sense of humour, spirituality and love for technology makes him a unique leader. It was lovely to take on a project which came with a responsibility to narrate the life of the leader of new India and I am sure each episode of the 10-part original series will be a revelation for the audiences. His growing-up years, brave decisions and roles at different phases of life make for an incredible story.”

Incidentally, PM Modi's poems have been used as songs in the film. The PM has been credited for the lyrics. 

The show will premiere from April onwards. The web series has been written by Mihir Bhuta and Radhika Anand. Each episode will range from 35 to 40 minutes.
