Talented actor Punit Talreja, who rose to fame with SAB TV show Badi Door Se Aaye Hain, has bagged a meaty role in a web show.
We hear the actor will be seen in the biopic of PM Narendra Modi’s life, a 10-episode Eros Now series titled Modi helmed by filmmaker Umesh Shukla.
We earlier exclusively reported about Faisal Khan, Prachee Shah, Makrand Deshpande, Darshan Zariwala, Zakir Hussain and Daya Shankar Pandey being part of the project.
The web series will capture the childhood and youth of Modi and will conclude with him taking oath as the Prime Minister. Veteran actor Mahesh Thakur will depict Modi’s journey after his appointment as Gujarat CM, whereas Ashish Sharma will play a younger version of him.
We reached out to Punit but he remained unavailable for a comment.
We buzzed the spokesperson at Eros Now, but did not get revert.
