New Delhi, News24 Bureau, May 15: Actor Vivek Oberoi, who is gearing up for biopic on Narendra Modi 'PM Narendra Modi', in a tweet allegedly slammed Mamata Banerjee and compared her to Saddam Hussain.
In his tweet, Vivek wrote ''I can’t understand why a respected lady like Didi is behaving like Saddam Hussain! Ironically, democracy is under threat and in danger by Dictator Didi herself. First #PriyankaSharma & now #TajinderBagga. यह दीदीगिरी नही चलेगी ! #SaveBengalSaveDemocracy #FreeTajinderBagga''
Earlier, 'PM Narendra Modi' producer Sandip Ssingh, on Tuesday criticised Mamata Banerjee as he came out in support of BJP Yuva Morcha leader Priyanka Sharma, arrested last Saturday for sharing a meme of the West Bengal Chief Minister on social media.
"Mamata Didi, finally your ego has lost. Is freedom of speech too much to ask for in your state? We all stand by Priyanka Sharma. Please stop being the Female Dawood of Bengal," tweeted Ssingh, whose movie "PM Narendra Modi" was barred from release by the Election Commission till the end of polls.
Ssingh's comment came on a day the Supreme Court granted bail to Sharma and asked her to apologise.
Sharma was arrested for sharing on social media Banerjee's photo-shopped picture superimposed on a photo of Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra from a Met Gala event in New York City.
The film "PM Narendra Modi", directed by Omung Kumar B and starring Vivek Oberoi, was scheduled for release on April 11, the first day of polling of the seven-phased Lok Sabha elections. But it was stopped by the EC after complaints by political parties.
It will now be released on May 24, a day after completion of polling.
