Paresh Rawal has been in the industry for over three decades and has numerous blockbusters to his account. While the actor feels honoured to be part of the fraternity and for all the appreciation he has received, he believes that there is a more challenging role waiting for him in the future.
According to The Indian Express, Rawal will be portraying the role of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his next project.
Earlier, there were reports that a biopic will be made on the controversial public figure but nothing was confirmed. However, Rawal himself has recently admitted that the film will go on floors in the next few months and confirmed that he will be producing it as well.
“We are just locking the script and hopefully it will finish soon. We will begin to shoot it in September or October this year,” stated Rawal.
Being a member of Indian political party BJP and a member of the Parliament, Rawal previously shared that getting into Modi’s shoes will not be an easy task. “It will be a hugely challenging role,” he added.
In 1994, Rawal essayed the role of India’s first deputy prime minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel for the film Sardar. Fans believe that the 63-year-old actor will excel playing Modi as well and can’t wait to see his first look as the leader of the ruling party.
Much like Rawal, Anupam Kher is also a part of an upcoming biopic on another Indian prime minister. Kher will be seen as Manmohan Singh in The Accidental Prime Minister. It’ll be exciting to see two of the most sought-after actors of Indian cinema play such intense characters.
Paresh Rawal will be seen next in Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor starrer Sanju.
