While Vivek Oberoi will play the nominal role of PM Narendra Modi, Boman Irani will be playing the role of Ratan Tata in PM Narendra Modi biopic.
Boman Irani is the newest addition to the star cast of Omung Kumar’s PM Narendra Modi. The 59-year-old actor will play the role of the corporate magnate Ratan Tata in the biopic.
Boman, who joined the film’s team in Ahmedabad, said, “I have always received comments on social media that I resemble Mr Ratan Tata. I always thought the day the character comes along, I will be more than happy to play it. So when Omung, Sandip and Vivek called me for the role, I immediately agreed to do it. We have already shot my part and it went very well.”
Talking about Vivek Oberoi, who will be seen as PM Modi in the biopic, Boman added, “I must say that Vivek has worked really hard to get where he has gotten with the character. It was a pleasure to see him maturing into an artist who takes on such a difficult role. He has done it with great maturity and homework.”
Apart from Boman, it has been publicized that Barkha Bisht will play Modi’s wife Jashodaben and Zarina Wahab will be seen as his mother Heeraben Modi. Prashant Narayanan will portray business tycoon Aditya Reddy in the biopic. Actors Darshan Rawal, Akshat R Saluja, Anjan Shrivastav, Rajendra Gupta, Yatin Karyekar and Manoj Joshi will also be seen in pivotal roles in the biopic on PM Modi.
