Producer Anand Pandit says the team of PM Narendra Modi is planning to release the film in 38 countries, including the US, UK, Canada, Australia and the UAE.

"PM Narendra Modi's life has great interest not just among Indian audiences but also cinema-goers across the world. We plan to release the film not just in the country but in at least 38 countries," Pandit, one of the producers and distributors of the biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said in a statement.

"The film will release in 1700 screens in India and we plan to release it in about 600 screens overseas," he added.

The release date of PM Narendra Modi has been set for April 11, when the Lok Sabha elections begin, the makers announced on Friday. It will be available in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil. The team is planning to release it on the same day in other countries as well.

Earlier, the makers of PM Narendra Modi received flak for planning to release the movie on April 12. Its release date was then changed to April 5.

The film's makers later deferred its release from April 5, following the Supreme Court's decision to set the date to hear a plea seeking to block the movie's release, for April 8.

Pandit said, "Now there should be no doubt on what the film is. It is a cinematic product. Those who have questioned the film and asked for a ban on it are the ones who have tried to stifle freedom of expression. Isn't it hypocritical that the very people who criticise when other films are banned are now calling for a ban on PM Narendra Modi?"

However, a plea by Aman Panwar, a Congress spokesman, contends that the release of the Modi biopic ahead of the election would disturb the level playing field.

Dismissing the criticism against the film as being propaganda, Pandit said, "This is a film that is inspiring and at the same time entertaining. Those who are calling it agenda-driven haven't even seen the film. We have not made this film to glorify the prime minister or counter the questions raised by the opposition parties. We have focused on his journey instead of getting into hardcore politics."
