PM Narendra Modi, the biopic has been in the eye of storm ever since it was announced. With the trailer dropping recently, the Internet have not stopped expressing their shock or awe, depending on the ideology they subscribe to.
The biographical drama has raised eyebrows due to the timing of release and hastily planned production. Now, the Omung Kumar directorial has landed in yet another controversy. Film’s poster attributes Javed Akhtar as one of its song writers which the veteran lyricist has categorically denied. Taking to Twitter, Akhtar expressed shock that he has been named as one of its song writers, as he claimed that he had not written any songs for it.
