Akshay Kumar will be essaying the role of a Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his upcoming project. Most of his films either exhibit patriotism or highlight the importance of social reforms. Akshay has a very different kind of fan following. Unlike that of an other actor.
Chairperson of Central Board of Film Certification, Pahlaj Nihalani, also praises and thinks that Akshay is the apt choice for playing NaMo on the silver screen! He was quoted saying, ” I can’t think of anyone better to play our Prime Minster than Akshay. He has a spotless image of an idealist and visionary. And look at the kind of work he’s doing. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Padman are the cinema of social reform that Guru Dutt and V Shantaram were associated with. Also, Akshay has risen from humble working class beginnings to become a national star, just like Modiji. We are certainly looking at a strong possibility of Akshay playing Modiji.”
