Thackeray The Film teaser: Nawazuddin comes alive on screen as Bal Thackeray

Bal Thackeray. The name evokes contradictory emotions in the hearts and minds of various Indians. But for Maharashtra and its people, he was a saviour, a Maratha who was the flag-bearer of the tradition, a messiah for the needy. But despite the controversies surrounding him, the man had an enigma, and there was a human side beneath that which took care of all, despite the religion or the views his organisation expressed. And now, in the most underrated and less hullabalood biopic, here comes Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Balasaheb Thackeray.

Watch it and feel the goosebumps. Written and co-produced by Shiva Sena’s Rajya Sabha lawmaker Sanjay Raut and directed by Abhijit Panse, the movie will hit the screens on January 23, 2019.
