In the wake of the demise of Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on the evening of 17 March, the makers of Narendra Modi’s much-awaited biopic PM Narendra Modi postponed the launch of the second poster of the film. Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) President Amit Shah was scheduled to unveil the new poster on Monday in Delhi.
The former Indian Defense Minister passed away in his private residence in Panaji, Goa, after a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer.
The makers released an official statement, published by Indo-Asian News Service, about the cancellation of the event. “We are extremely sorry to inform that the poster launch of our film PM Narendra Modi, which was scheduled for 18 March, 10.30 am, has been postponed due to the death of Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar. Our heartfelt condolences to his family in this time of grief. Rest in peace,” the statement read.
Meanwhile, the makers also unveiled nine different looks of Vivek Oberoi from the film on Monday. The looks capture Modi’s journey in different points of his life.
