The meeting comes a week after PM Modi met Bollywood producers and discussed the issues faced by the film industry. The meeting was followed by a reduction in GST on film tickets by the government. Also, a biopic based on PM Modiâ€™s life is all set to go on floors in mid-January. Vivek Oberoi has been roped in to play Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the latter's biopic, titled PM Narendra Modi. The film will be directed by Omung Kumar who has previously helmed hit biographical dramas like Sarabjit and Mary Kom.
