Nine new looks of actor Vivek Oberoi, from the upcoming biopic on PM Narendra Modi, have been shared online, showing the actor in a variety of different costumes and makeup, and teasing the journey that the film will chart.

Sharing the images on Twitter, trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, “Vivek Anand Oberoi’s different looks in the biopic #PMNarendraModi... Directed by Omung Kumar... Produced by Sandip Ssingh, Suresh Oberoi and Anand Pandit... 12 April 2019 release.”

Several fans took to Twitter to react to the new pictures, with many of them pointing out that Vivek doesn’t look entirely convincing. “He is looking neither Oberoi nor Modi,” one person wrote. See more reactions here:
