We recently got to know that Election Commission (EC) has stopped Bollywood biopic ‘PM Narendra Modi’ from releasing today, i.e. April 11. But the web series on the incumbent PM which is called as Modi: Journey Of A Common Man has been released and is still playing (5 episodes are out). Speaking of the series, the same is helmed by Umesh Shukla of Oh My God movie fame. The series is written by Mihir Bhuta and Radhika Anand. It is based on Kishor Makwana's Modi: Common Man's PM and the show stars Faisal Khan, Ashish Sharma and Mahesh Thakur.

The director of the series told IANS, "The content of my series is not such that there will be complaints to the EC unnecessarily. It's a normal human's story. Maybe it has to do with the medium of Internet. Maybe the code of conduct is different... I don't know the rules, but if there was something (a complaint), we would have heard about it.

Defending the show's release date which coincides with general elections, Shukla said, "It was not planned this way. It is a coincidence. I was working on it since 11 to 12 months. It could have come out one month earlier as well, but it got delayed owing to some technical glitches."

The remaining five episodes of will be released this week. Some reports suggest that the EC’s “umbrella order” will also apply to this show as well. As per Indian Express, according to a separate order, the poll panel also imposed a ban on public screening of “any biopic material in the nature of biography/ hagiography” which promotes any political party or candidate. The order was sent to the I&B Ministry, CBFC and all State Chief Electoral Officers.
