New Delhi: With the Lok Sabha Elections 2019 just a couple of months away, another biopic based on a politician has been announced. After ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ and PM Narendra Modi’s biopic starring Vivek Oberoi in lead role, a film titled ‘My Name is Raga’, based on the life of Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s life is being made. The teaser of the film has been released and it chronicles the journey of Rahul Gandhi right from the time of Indira Gandhi’s assassination to his rise as the president of INC.
The four minutes and three seconds video narrates the story of Rahul Gandhi from his childhood to his political career. Aswini Kumar is essaying the role of the Congress President in the film while Himant Kapadiya is playing Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Interestingly, Raju Kher is playing former PM Manmohan Singh in ‘My Name Is RaGa’. His brother Anupam Kher had played the character of Singh in ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’, which was based on Sanjaya Baru’s novel of the same name.

The film, which has been directed by Rupesh Paul, will hit the silver screens in April 2019.
“The movie has no intentions to glorify Rahul or to demystify him. It’s the story of a coming back of a human being who had been ridiculously attacked,” Rupesh Paul said in a statement.
“Anyone who has fearlessly confronted defeat and failure can relate to this story. In that sense, I don’t want to call this a biopic, it’s a story of any man who becomes unstoppable after he win over a catastrophic life,” he added.
