The Narendra Modi bio-pic directed by Omung Kumar is proving to be a source of huge embarrassment for the Modi government. Not only has the trailer been terribly trolled it now appears that the film’s producers are adding on names of heavyweight artistes in the film’s credit titles , artistes who have nothing to do with the project.
First it was Javed Akhtar who called out the fraudulence in the film’s publicity and posters where his name was mentioned as one of the lyricists.To the utter embarrassment of the film’s team Javed Akhtar tweeted his protest saying he had nothing to do with the bio-pic.
Another well-known lyricist Sameer whose name was also in the credits has come forward to state he was no part of the project.
One now hears that Prasoon Joshi whose name is also in the credits of the trailer has not written any lyrics for the bio-pic, though he is not coming out with a denial due to his closeness to the Prime Minister.
Sources close to the BJP state that the Prime Minister’s office intends to distance itself from this unauthorized bio-pic.
