Be it through his tweets or interviews, Madhur Bhandarkar has never shied away from voicing his support for Prime Minister designate, Narendra Modi. And now, the filmmaker is all set to take his affiliation on screen. If sources are to be believed, Bhandarkar is keen on making a biopic on NaMo.

"Madhur had even met Mr Modi ten months ago and has been very impressed by his journey from being a tea-seller to becoming India's 15th Prime Minister," says a source, adding, "The film is being planned and will feature Modi's entire life - from his childhood to the present. Madhur's team has thus being doing a lot of research on Modi's life."
