This is the same guy who compared his character in Krrish 3 with The Legendary JOKER
I would rather waste 2 hours watching Arnab Goswami screaming on TV (on MUTE) instead of paying & watching Vivek Oberoi's mockery pic.twitter.com/BDVyUppoUj— Freaky ~ DRaval (@HODL_till_2140) January 7, 2019
A lot of users stated that the man in the poster does not resemble either Narendra Modi or actor Vivek Oberoi and it might be a scam by the filmmakers.
In most of the biopics either the character luks like the star or the person himself..This is the first tym when a character is luking like a third person..😒 #NarendraModiBiopic pic.twitter.com/B3G1AF7He8
