EC Bans Release of PM Modi Biopic a Day Before Release Date

The Election Commission of India (EC), on Wednesday, 10 April, banned the release of the biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi during poll season, just a day before it was slated to be released. In its order, the commission said that “any such film that subserves purpose of any political entity or individual should not be displayed in the electronic media.”

The first phase of Lok Sabha elections starts Thursday, 11 April.

The Vivek-Oberoi-starrer biopic, which was scheduled to be released on 11 April, had received a ‘Universal’ certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) merely hours before the EC ban.
