New Delhi: If there is one man who is taking every celebrity`s share of limelight these days, then it is none other than the BJP prime ministerial candidate- Narendra Modi.
The man literally on a mission draws a lot of intrigue when it comes to the journey of his life so far. Let’s have a quick dekko at who possibly could be the best man in the business for reprising NaMo on screen.
The first obvious choice for the role has to be Paresh Rawal. This Gujarat-born Indian actor has every reason to play the big man himself on 70mm screen. Reportedly, a US-based NRI filmmaker Mitesh Patel has even decided to make a biopic on Narendra Modi and is keen to case Rawal as the man. In fact, reports suggest that his film is likely to cover the entire journey of NaMo, where in two actors will reprise his role.
If talks are to be believed, then Paresh Rawal will be soon seen playing the senior (read current version) version of the BJP leader. Interestingly, the actor has been given ticket by the BJP for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections and is contesting from Ahmedabad East.
Besides Paresh Rawal, another interesting fit could be `Krrish 3` villain Vivek Oberoi. The self-confessed Modi fan, Vivek would be amusing to watch in that role. The catch however is that the same NRI filmmaker is planning to rope in the actor for playing NaMo`s younger version in the film. So, now you know why it will be amusing to watch Vivek play the part.
Apart from these Bollywood actors, others who could do justice to the political figure can be the intense Ajay Devgn or even Akshay Kumar. The `Satyagrah` actor is known to have met the Gujarat chief minister once and happens to support his ideology as well. It would be terrific to watch the oh-so-serious Ajay play NaMo on screen.
Also, not to forget the actor who recently made waves after meeting Modi—Salman Khan. The man might not be the first choice to play such a towering character on celluloid but he can certainly pull the crowd just like the NaMo NaMo mantra does.
Will the `real` man playing NaMo please stand up!
