Late Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray biopic is coming out. And none other than actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be seen playing his part. The filmmakers are all set to release its trailer today, about the much-awaited film so far.

After playing writer Manto with conviction in 2018, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is set to play the political leader. Thackeray is helmed by Abhijit Panse. The film has been written and produced by journalist and Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the titular role of Balasaheb Thackeray in the biopic of the late Shiv Sena leader. Apart from Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing the titular role, the film also stars Amrita Rao, Abdul Quadir Amin, Anushka Jadhav, Laxman Singh Rajput and Niranjan Javir.

The film has been shot in Hindi and Marathi, and will be dubbed in English. The film is expected to release in the first quarter of 2019.

“We haven’t shown any controversial aspect in this film. Balasaheb’s life has been an open book. He never tried to hide anything from his life. So, in this film also we are not showing any hidden truth of his life,” Thackeray producer Sanjay Raut said.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who had to polish his Marathi accent for the role, had earlier said, “More than myself, I appreciate Shiv Sena that they approached me for the role. That’s a huge thing. I am just an actor. I will anyway sit down with my director to come up with the best outcome but it is a huge deal that these people thought of me in the first place.”

Sanjay Raut confirmed that he is interested to make a sequel on the life of late Bal Thackeray. He said, “We can’t sum up his life in one film. So, we are planning to make another part of his biopic as its sequel and we have started working on that aspect as well. Working with Balasaheb (Thackeray) was my dream. I have started visualising this new dream so that I can revisit my fond memories with him. I always tell that I can’t live without him and through this film, I will be able to fulfill my wish.”
