In answer to the notice sent by EC to the producers of ‘PM Narendra Modi‘, the makers said that postponing the movie will be “violation of freedom of speech and expression, and demeans the intellect of the electorate”.

Actor Vivek Anand Oberoi and one of the producers Sandip Ssingh went to the office of the EC in New Delhi to submit a response to its notice over delaying the release.

Ssingh said, “As of now, we are scheduled to hit the theatres on April 5. All activities are on schedule. We are hoping for a favorable decision from the EC.”

Just as the first trailer of the movie ‘PM Narendra Modi‘ released, the film hit a big road bump as the national party Congress plead Election Commission to postpone the film. The party claimed that the film which releases just a few days before the Lok Sabha elections starts might influence the voters to vote for Narendra Modi again.

Interestingly, the EC has issued the notice to the filmmakers on the grounds of violating the election code of conduct. But it should be noted that the code of conduct is applicable to political parties and candidates, not to private citizens of the country. However, the makers of the biopic have denied any links to the BJP.
