Nawazuddin Siddiqui is playing the late politician Bal Thackeray in his biopic. While his character look is yet to be revealed, many have reportedly been impressed with Siddiqui’s portrayal of Thackeray. The look will be revealed on 21st December.
DNA reports that the first look will be a star studded one, with Amitabh Bachchan in attendance. When contacted, Siddiqui refused to divulge any details. Although Rajyasabha MP and Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut, who also scripted the story has said that the audience will have to wait for the launch, to see why Siddiqui was cast. He said, “Come to the first-look launch and all will be revealed. Balasaheb was a mass leader and I want this to be a mainstream popular film which will strike a chord with all those who know about him and his struggle. I’ve tried to be as true to the subject as cinematically possible without any interference from anyone, including the Thackeray family.”
Siddiqui was last seen in ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ (2017).
