The trailer of Bal Thackeray biopic, simply titled Thackeray is here. Starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead role, Thackeray is based on the life of Bal Thackeray also known as Balasaheb Thackeray, who founded the political party, Shiv Sena. He was controversial as well as influential. And Nawazuddin Siddiqui has nailed it as the politician. The trailer follows the life of Bal Thackeray and his rise in the Maharashtra political circuit.
The cinematography and the camera work seems good and the background score is amazing. Though the movie is almost a month away from its release, it’s quite intriguing to see one actor play three different real-life characters in a span of three years. Nawazuddin Siddiqui played Dashrath Manjhi in Manjhi – The Mountain Man, Saadat Hasan Manto in Manto, and now Bal Thackeray in Thackeray. While the previous two biopics got him a lot of acclaims, Thackeray trailer seems like another feather in his glorious hat.
Knowing the kind of personality Bal Thackeray was, Thackeray will surely be a controversial film. Check out the awaited trailer of Thackeray below:
While Thackeray is slated for a January 25 release, two days after the birth anniversary of late Bal Thackeray, it’ll face competition from several films like Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Emraan Hashmi’s Cheat India and Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30. Interestingly, except for the Emraan Hashmi starrer, all other films releasing during the Republic day weekend are biopics. In fact, Cheat India too is inspired by real-life stories.
Directed by Abhijit Panse, Thackeray stars Nawanuddin Siddiqui and Amrita Rao.
