After announcing actor Manoj Joshi in the role of Amit Shah in the biopic PM Narendra Modi, the producers have cast veteran actor Zarina Wahab in the role of Narendra Modi’s mother Heeraben Modi in the film.

Television actor Barkha Bisht will be paying the role of Narendra Modi’s wife Jashodaben in the film.

These two characters were one of the most crucial ones in the film. I am glad that Zarina Ji agreed on doing it as no one other than her could have done a better job. Barkha is playing his wife and she is doing a great job. I am happy to have such a powerful and talented cast for this film.
