PM Narendra Modi has been facing a tough competition from Guy Ritchie's live-action film, Aladdin as well as Arjun Kapoor's espionage thriller, India's Most Wanted

The film traces Narendra Modi's journey "from abject poverty, selling tea on a railway station as a chaiwallah (tea seller) to becoming the Leader of the world’s largest democracy".

It was initially scheduled to hit cinemas on 5 April, but was banned by the Election Commission as biopics with political content "threaten level playing field".
