EC seeks comments from PM’s biopic makers

New Delhi: Following the Opposition’s demand to stall the release of PM’s biopic till elections, the Election Commission has sought comments from the makers of a biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

It was scheduled to release on 5 April and the Delhi CEO had issued a notice to the producers with regards to the matter.

“Since parties had approached the EC, it will also issue a notice,” a functionary said.

It is also learnt that the commission would seek their opinions on delaying the release.

On March 20, East Delhi Returning Officer K Mahesh suo motu issued notices to the production house and music company behind the film “PM Narendra Modi” and two leading newspapers for publishing advertisements of the film. Opposition parties have alleged that the film violates the model code and would act like an advertisement for the BJP.
