Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is already recognised in the industry for his versatility in portraying unconventional roles. Now, the actor is all set be part of a biopic that is based on political party Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray.
Now, the makers of the film have recently released the the much-awaited teaser of the film.
Titled ‘Thackeray The Film’, the teaser has some really strong scenes. Sporting a striking resemblance to the Shiv Sena supremo, Nawazuddin nailed the look.
Nawazuddin posted the first teaser of the biopic, titled Thackeray, on Twitter. His post read, “It’s an honour and pride to portray the Real King of the Country on Screen. Here comes the TEASER of #Thackeray. Hearty Thanx to Shri @uddhavthackeray Sir, Shri @rautsanjay61, Shri @SrBachchan Sir and Abhijit Panse.”
The one minute forty second-long teaser starts with a reference to a violence-ridden city, followed by a Muslim man praying with the Shiv Sena leader, who is conducting a meeting in the same room. The teaser then reveals Siddiqui as Bal Thackeray, greeting a large rally with his party symbol, the face of a tiger, framed right behind his head.
The biopic is being produced by Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut, under the banner ‘Raut’ers Entertainment’. It has also surfaced that the biopic on Balasaheb will be directed by MNS leader Abhijeet Panse.
The biopic will release on January 23, 2019.
