• Thackeray teaser: Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Balasaheb is fiery

    26th November 2018

    Makers of 'Thackeray' dropped the official teaser of the film featuring Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Balasaheb Thackeray, the founder and acclaimed leader of the Shiv Sena party. The teaser is quite intense and even not hiding away from the controversial Hindu-Muslim riots.

    The teaser begins with a baby crying on the road and there comes a firing flame liquor bottle right next to it following a blast. Some minute elements are well-shown in the teaser but majorly the riots remains in focus. While a Muslim commoner screams Thackeray's name as one of the greatest leaders of all time; drone shot from one of its crowded rally then showcases Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Balasaheb who waves hand at the crowd.

    The film caters the journey of the charismatic cartoonist-turned-firebrand politician, Bal Thackeray. Muslim-Hindu riots have been going on forever but Thackrey brought a wave of change during his reign and the teaser showcases that bravely.

    The biopic has been produced by Sanjay Raut, the Shiv Sena Member of Parliament and executive editor of the party's mouthpiece, Saamna. If released as per schedule on January 25, two days after the Shiv Sena founder's 93rd birth anniversary it will compete with 'Manikarnika The Queen of Jhansi', 'Cheat India' and 'Super 30'.
