Ashish Sharma, who has enthralled audiences with his various TV performances, like ‘Siya Ke Ram’ (Star Plus), will next be seen in Eros Now’s digital biopic on PM Narendra Modi titled ‘Modi’. Sharma is elated to have played the Prime Minister and says that it was a compliment for the makers to consider him for the project, as they wanted a performer and not someone who resembled Mr. Modi.
Sharma revealed, “I was called by Umesh (Shukla, the director). And when I was told that he is considering me for this part I was taken aback. The first thing I told him was that I don’t even look like him. However, they told me that they are not looking for someone who looks like him. They wanted a performer who could convince the audience and connect with them. That itself was a compliment for me. I’m very confident with my performance. People (onlookers) couldn’t draw the difference between me and the younger version of Modi. His friends and the real people who have seen him, were convinced with my performance. They used to say, ‘Aise hi they, aise hi baat karte the’ so that was a big compliment for me,” as according to Bollywood Life.
The series will run for ten episodes and will premiere in April.
