PM Narendra Modi biopic: Will Vivek Oberoi change his Twitter name to Chowkidar Vivek Anand Oberoi? The actor responds
Vivek Oberoi starrer PM Narendra Modi biopic is the hottest topic of discussion in Bollywood currently. The Omung Kumar-directed film, which was made in a record 38 days, has since inception been facing criticism from various quarters. While the film was earlier supposed to release on April 5, it hit a roadblock with the censor board and forced the makers to postpone the film’s release due to lack of certification. Although Vivek Oberoi's association with the BJP is no secret, only time will tell whether the film is 'propaganda' material or not.
Vivek is, or at least was, closely connected to the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) and was one of the star party's campaigners back in 2014. Given his allegiance, we asked the actor if he too will be changing his name on Twitter to ‘Chowkidar Vivek Anan Oberoi’ and this is what he had to say. “No, not really. My focus is on promoting this film. Getting it out there on the 11th of April and telling this really inspiring tale. So I am not really sure that I am going to be out there campaigning and stuff. I did campaigning in 2014 and I campaigned specifically for candidates that I believed in. I read about their track record and I said ok, these are the people as I would like to see as leaders in my country. Like General VK Singh, a very illustrious man, so I went and campaigned for them and I am glad that he made it,” he said.

Commenting on the film getting a clean chit from the Supreme Court, Vivek expressed his happiness. “The election commission has cleared the film. Every single court in the country has cleared the film. So I think we are on sound footing,” he added with confidence.
