After the trailer of Vivek Oberoi's PM Narendra Modi was released only recently and its release date preponed, Eros Now has also unveiled the trailer of its the 10-episode web series based on the life and times of Narendra Modi. Titled Modi - Journey of a Common Man, show brings to the light the prominent events in Modi’s life that led to him becoming India’s prime minister.
As the three-and-a-half minute trailer opens, the voice of the enigmatic leader precedes his corporeal body, and he guides us through his philosophy about the nation, freedom and democracy. The clip jumps back in time and we are introduced to a younger, tea-vending Modi, running on the platform, struggling to find any meaning in the menial job and life in general.
Like the Omung Kumar biopic, the series also aims at following the character of Modi from his unassuming childhood to his quest to become a sanyasi, through to his adventurous days during the Emergency period, all while he manages to find his true purpose in life. And yes, the infamous Godhra incident.
The series is helmed by director Umesh Shukla (102 Not Out) and produced by Benchmark Pictures. It stars Faisal Khan, Ashish Sharma, Mahesh Thakur, Darshan Jariwalla and Makrand Deshpande. Modi- Journey of a Common Man will be available on Eros Now from April, the same month the Lok Sabha elections commence, similarly like Vivek's PM Narendra Modi. There are also reports that Paresh Rawal, a sitting BJP parliamentarian is also planning his own version of Modi. The project is assumed to be in development stage.
