 While Piyush Goyal said the movie on Modi’s life is inspiring, Ravi Shankar Prasad, without mentioning the PM, called the movie extraordinary.

 Chalo Jeete Hain, a 32-minute short film, reportedly inspired by the early life of Prime Minister Modi, was screened at the Rajya Sabha secretariat on Wednesday in presence of Vice-President M Naidu, Union Ministers Piyush Goyal, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Rajyavardhan Rathore, and JP Nadda.

While the movie does not claim to be the Prime Minister’s official biography, sources in the Rajya Sabha secretariat told The Media: “The story is about this young boy, who goes asking his parents and others…what’s it that you live for after reading a phrase… ‘a winner is one who lives for others’… The young boy is…Narendra Modi…”

On Tuesday, the movie was also screened at the Rashtrapati Bhavan for President Ram Nath Kovind, with senior government officials claiming the request for the screening had come from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and the Prime Minister’s Office. The Rashtrapati Bhavan has, however, has denied such a claim.

“The filmmakers wrote to us and said that this is a film about the innocence of childhood and about young people helping each other. They said they would like to show it to President Kovind. The President gave his consent and it was screened on Tuesday. Such screenings have happened in the past too. Such values are encouraged,” Ashok Malik, Press Secretary to President Ramnath Kovind, told The Media

 Former President Pranab Mukherjee had watched several films in the Rashtrapati Bhavan auditorium, including ‘Pink’ and ‘Piku’.

Union Ministers, who watched the movie on Wednesday, took to Twitter to praise it. While Piyush Goyal said the movie on Modi’s life is inspiring, Ravi Shankar Prasad, without mentioning the PM, called the movie extraordinary.
