After a series of biopics and teleshows featuring the story of Prime Minister Narendra Modi hit the screens earlier this year, another film on the PM Modi is on its way. Interestingly, the new movie will be produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and is titled Mann Bairagi.
The makers of an hour-long ‘special film’ released the first look posters of the movie on the 69th birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The short film on PM Modi is being produced by filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Mahaveer Jain.
According to the report, Sanjay Leela Bhansali said what interested him the most in the story is its ‘universal appeal and message’. “The story was very well-researched, and the turning point of our PM’s life as a young man really intrigued me. I felt that it’s an unheard story which needs to be told,” said Bhansali on PM Modi and the movie.
The film which is being produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and is being written and directed by Ssanjay Tripaathy is based on an “untold story from the life of the Prime Minister which has not been in the public domain so far,” its makers said.
The poster the movie on PM Modi produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali was launched on Twitter by film star Akshay Kumar.

Talking about his latest production, Sanjay Leela Bhansali revealed that the reason he decided to produce the film was because of its “universal appeal and message”.
“Mann Bairagi brings out that defining moment in the journey of PM Modi which has not been in public knowledge so far. I am sure it will connect with and inspire young people deeply, and that’s what excited us to work on this film,” said Jain.
Writer and director Ssanjay Tripaathy said, “For me, it’s a human interest story about the self-discovery of a person who went on to become such a strong leader of our country.”
