Eros Now is all set to release the second season of Modi: CM to PM starring Mahesh Thakur in the lead role and helmed by Director Umesh Shukla.
The three episodes in the second season will showcase Modi’s tenure as the Chief Minister of Gujarat for three consecutive terms and his journey of becoming PM of the nation.
After engaging the viewers with PM Narendra Modi’s journey of a common man, Director Umesh Shukla is enthusiastic to present the second season of the series. Just before the release of the second season, he shares some interesting insights on what went behind the making of such an elaborate series.
Director Umesh Shukla shares, “Creating and executing a biography is a challenging task. To begin with, we thoroughly read the biography titled ‘Modi: Common Man’s PM’ written by Kishore Makwana. We also met Modi Ji’s mother and brothers to understand his family conditions and how he was brought up. Post this, we went to visit his school in Vadnagar, a small town in the state of Gujarat.”
He further added, “We also spoke to people around his tea stall near a railway station that was there for a long time. We have also tried to showcase the Godhra riots keeping in mind the sensitivity of the topic. In fact, we have shot certain sequences at the actual places. Apart from this, we shot in Haridwar and Kolkata. All the steps taken are an effort to keep the authenticity of the story intact.”
Umesh Shukla also added that the series is an inspiration to many who want to work and commit themselves to the betterment of society. It will also highlight the growth and challenges Narendra Modi faced in his quest to become the Prime Minister. The show will release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Gujarati on Eros Now.
