Mann Bairagi: Akshay Kumar shares poster revealing unexplored side of PM’s life on his birthday
On the occasion of PM Modi’s 69th birthday, actor Akshay Kumar shared the first look of the film ‘Mann Bairagi’, based on the unexplored side of PM’s life. The film is directed by Sanjay Tripathy, produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and co-produced by Mahavir Jain.
The actor captioned the poster “Happy to present the first look of Sanjay Leela Bhansali & Mahaveer Jain’s special feature, #MannBairagi on the defining moment of our PM's life on his birthday! #HappyBirthdayPMModi.”
When asked what made him produce the film, Bhansali said that it was ‘that crucial moment’ that changed the young Narendra Modi into the PM we have before us. Secondly, he added that the storyline was well-researched and I felt it is that aspect of his life that has never been explored and his fans must know about it.
Speaking about the film Tripathy said, “It is full of human interest. It has the ability to touch hearts. It is about the discovery of a simple person who went on to become a strong leader of a nation.”
The film is slated to release this winter, though exact releasing dates are yet to be announced.
