Mumbai: Paresh Rawal is undoubtedly one of the finest actors we have in Bollywood. The actor, who will be seen playing the role of Sunil Dutt in ‘Sanju’, recently, confirmed that he will be reprising the role of PM Narendra Modi in the latter’s upcoming biopic. According to reports, Paresh Rawal said that they are currently locking the script and the shoot might start shooting in September. The role is extremely challenging as most of the shooting will be done inside flights where our PM spends a maximum of his time.

The cost involved in the biopic project is still not made public but the cost involved in the preparation is huge with a maximum cost of tickets for Paresh. Paresh will learn the etiquette required by any PM when he is on boarding a flight or getting down from a flight. The hand gestures, the waving, the smile and the athletism has to be matched.

The production team wants Paresh to travel to at least 50 countries in the coming year to get a feel of what the PM goes through during foreign visits in different parts of the world. The selection of countries has been already done by the list taken from the PMO office as to where the PM traveled in the last 4 years. The film will extensively cover the part where PM prepares for a foreign visit, packs his luggage, what he feels one night before his scheduled flight and also his routine when he visits a country. Travel tour agents like Imtiaz Ali and Zoya Akhtar are being considered for the director’s role.
