Nawazuddin Siddiqui's biopic on Bal Thackeray (titled Thackeray) is one of the most anticipated films yet. In fact, after seeing the teaser of Thackeray, everyone wants to know how the actor will be able to act and speak like the popular Shiv Sena supremo. But let us tell you that the movie has not hit the floors till now. The actor was undergoing diction and vocal training to feel and sound like Balasaheb Thackeray. And looks like he is nearly ready as reports suggest that the movie will kickstart from March 25. It will be shot across several locations in Maharashtra and will release on Balasaheb Thackeray's 93rd birth annoversary, which falls on January 23, 2019.
Talking about the movie, Shiv Sena politician Sanjay Raut revealed to Mumbai Mirror, "It is a fullfledged commercial film which will be shot at approximately 108 locations, including the Lucknow Court that Balasaheb Thackeray visited during the Babri Masjid demolition hearing." Thackeray will also be shot in and around Matoshree — the late Shiv Sena head's residence in Mumbai. But if you thought the movie would focus only on his political journey, then let us tell you that you are wrong. In fact, Thackeray will focus more on his journey as a cartoonist and how he rose to power and became what he is - a legend in the hearts of all. Nawaz will be seen sporting several looks as he ages from a young Marathi ethnocentric cartoonist to the politician who changed Maharashtra forever.
