The PM Narendra Modi biopic starring Vivek Oberoi will finally hit theatres this Friday (May 24), a day after the results of the Lok Sabha election 2019 are announced.

The makers were originally planning to release the film a week before polling began for the 2019 Indian General Elections.

However, the Election Commission subsequently ordered a stay on its release, fearing it could influence the electoral balance in favour of Mr Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party.

Vivek recently said having movie’s release deferred “was the worst feeling in the world”, since they had sent the prints globally and were ready for it to hit theatres on April 11th.
