An important part of Laal Singh Chaddha is when the protagonist starts running across the length and breadth of India. In one scene, he’s shown running at what seems to be the ghats of Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. Just behind him, on the wall, Narendra Modi’s picture is painted along with the slogan, ‘Ab Ki Baar, Modi Sarkar’. This slogan was used in the 2014 Lok Sabha Elections to popularize Modi and it had spread like wildfire. Narendra Modi won the election by a landslide victory the same year and became the Prime Minister.
