New Delhi: The Election Commission (EC) on Saturday told entertainment firm Eros Now to stop streaming online a web series on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, reports NDTV. 

The EC referred to its order on April 10 that banned a biopic on PM Modi from releasing in election season to stop Eros Now from streaming the web series, “Modi - Journey of a Common Man”.  

“...In view of the admitted facts and material available on record, this web series being an original web series on Shri Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister and a political leader and a prospective candidate in the current general elections to the Lok Sabha, cannot be exhibited,” the Election Commission said in a letter to Eros Now.

“On viewing the trailer of the web series, it is apparent that the said web series showcases the different phases of life of PM Shri Narendra Modi, from childhood to becoming a national leader,” the EC said.
