'Modi Kaka Ka Gaon' Inspired By Indian PM To Be Released

December 29, 2017

"Modi Kaka Ka Gaon" a Hindi feature film loosely inspired by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's development agenda, to be released today. The film is not a reproduction of any actual events or a biopic of PM Modi.

The film was rejected by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) initially on various grounds. They lit the 'green light' only after obtaining a 'no-objection certificate' from the Prime Minister’s Office, changing the film's original name "Modi Ka Gaon" to "Modi Kaka Ka Gaon" and muting the word “Uri”, which is a reference to the terrorist attack on an Army camp in Kashmir in September 2016.

The 135-minute-long film is directed by Tushar Amrish Goel and produced by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member CA Suresh Jha. PM Modi lookalike Mumbai businessman Vikas Mahante featured as Nagendra, the prime minister who transforms India through his vivid policy decisions.

Modi introduced projects such as 'Make in India', "Housing for All By 2022" to bring economic growth and development. Even though Modi is charismatic leader his hardline Hindu nationalist policies are not without criticism.
