A purported movie poster with a name "Haan Main Giriraj Hoon" has emerged and is being widely shared by social media users, including followers of Union Minister Giriraj Singh. With three larger than life size photos of Singh on the poster, where the union minister of Animal Husbandry is seen with a mark of ''tilak'' on his forehead, the filmmakers claim that the movie is based on the life of the BJP firebrand.

Giriraj Singh has been projected as the messiah of every poor and needy in this film. Dinkar Film Productions released the poster of the film on social media on Saturday.

The name of the film is - "Har Gareeb, Zarooratmand ki awaz hoon, haan main Giriraj hoon" (I am the voice of every poor and needy, yes, I am Giriraj).Ever since the poster was released, many media outlets have published reports on the film.

Giriraj Singh claims: Just a day after the poster surfaced, the Union minister on Sunday distanced himself from it. Singh, on Twitter, said the movie makers didn't seek his permission before releasing the said poster and he is not interested in such medium.

Reality: News Nation has learnt that this short film is indeed being made and is currently under production. Roles haven’t been assigned so far and the plot is yet to be finalised. The move is directed by Raghubeer Singh and produced by Dinkar Bhardwaj.

But with Singh himself urging the filmmakers to desist from making such posters on him, the future of this film remains uncertain.

Who is Giriraj Singh?

Singh is the Member of Parliament from the Begusarai Parliamentary constituency in the 17th Lok Sabha. This time he defeated Kanhaiya Kumar of the JNU fame from there.
