Two important Bollywood films PM Narendra Modi and India’s Most Wanted clashed at the box office today. PM Narendra Modi as the name suggests is the biopic of our current Prime Minister. Starring Vivek Oberoi in lead and directed by Omung Kumar, the film releases at the perfect time. A time when the whole country has come together to re-elect Modi as the PM with a great majority and the craze around him is phenomenal.
India’s Most Wanted starring Arjun Kapoor in lead is a Raj Kumar Gupta film. RKG’s previous film Raid was a 100 crore grosser Hit and the hopes from IMW are similar. Though the film doesn’t have a great hype at the Box Office, it’s one of the awaited Bollywood films this year.
