New Delhi: Actor Paresh Rawal is eagerly looking forward to the shooting of the Narendra Modi biopic and feels it's a massive responsibility as an artiste to don the role of Indian Prime Minister.

The yet-to-be titled film, which will go on the floor in August, will be produced by Rawal, the actor's second production venture after Oh My God!.

"I will start shooting the Narendra Modi biopic from August. It's a massive responsibility being an actor to portray a leader of such great stature. He knows that I am playing him in his biopic," Rawal told reporters here.

For the Modi biopic, the national-award winning actor says he will have to research a lot before starting the shoot, adding he will not mimic him.

"Like the way I did during my stint in playing Sardar Patel in the film 'Sardar', here also I have to do loads of photo reading and listen to his speeches. But I will not mimic him. I will try to capture his spirit. I know very well that I can never look like Modi," said the Ahmedabad MP, who was in the capital for the promotion of his upcoming film Dharam Sankat Mein.

In "Dharam Sankat Mein", Rawal is sharing screen space with veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah, whom he considers his inspiration.

"It's always a joyride to work with him. It's a learning process for me. He is not only a good actor but also a good human being. I want to have timeless, truth and depth-like Naseer bhai in my career. He has always been my inspiration," he said. Rawal will be seen next in Hera Pheri 3 and Oh My God! 2.
