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".
