Synopsis: This year and the coming one has several biopics to release, which certainly include Thackeray. The film has Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead role who would be playing the character of the former Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray, hence the film happens to be a biopic. The film is directed by Abhijit Panse, while it is all set to release in January 2019 on the eve of the actor’s birthday. Before the film hit the floor, there seemed some controversy, which had surrounded the movie for the presence of the actor. This is because the Shiv Sena leadership had objection for the actor who is playing the lead character in the film. This went on to disturb the makers as well.
The film is produced by Sanjay Raut who is also from Shiv Sena, while Abhijeet too is connected with this fringe group. But considering the talent and performances the actor has given in the past, we have seen the makers considering him only for the said role. They then resolved the issue and roped in the actor for the said role. The film will talk about the rise and fall of the leader and his power and control he had on the city and the people dwelling about it.
As per reports, the film will be shot in different parts of the Maharashtra state along with the serious incidents that have occurred in his life including the Babri Masjid Demolition hearing as well. Also, the director of the film now hails from MNS another fringe group, which is led by Bala Saheb’s nephew Raj Thackrey. The film will also cover the Mumbai Riots in 1992 and the other issues that made the city always the burning issue. Well, stay tuned to know more about it and others only with us.
