Bollywood star Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one actor, who is always honest and upfront about his work. The ‘Sacred Games’ actor has always challenged the norms and stereotypes and has created a niche for himself in the industry. Nawaz is now awaiting the release of ‘Thackeray’.

It is the season of biopics. We already had ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’, where Anupam Kher portrayed the role of former PM Manmohan Singh. Now, the ‘Manto’ actor cleared the air regarding the release of ‘Thackeray’ in an interview to the tabloid Mid-Day.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui said, “Balasaheb ko propaganda ki kya zaroorat? It is his birthday, so the film is releasing now. It has nothing to do with any political motive. If the film were to be released any other year, the response wouldn’t be different.”

In this Instagram image, Nawazuddin Siddiqui means business as he is portraying the role of late Bal Thackeray.

He also added that late Bal Thackeray, who was also the founder and supremo of Shiv Sena was already a controversial man and there is no scope of whitewashing him or playing neutral with him. According to Nawazuddin, the right approach would be to show him the way he was.

Bal Thackeray no doubt polarised opinion, but he was one of the biggest leaders of India and especially Maharashtra during the 1990s. The biopic is being directed by Abhijit Panse. ‘Thackeray’ is slated to release on January 25, 2019.
