Nawazuddin Siddiqui surprised us yesterday when he announced that he’s playing the late Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray in a biopic. Not just his first Look as the leader, the chameleonic actor also launched the teaser of the film, Thackeray The film. The teaser left us inspired with its robust scenes of the violent aftermath, absorbing cinematography and Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s drastic transformation as Bal Thackeray, even getting that frame language right.
Even as the teaser of the movie, penned by using Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, was given an excellent reaction, the same cannot be said about Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s tweet in which he revealed the teaser. He had written, “It’s an honour and pride to portray the actual King of the country on screen. right here comes the TEASER for #Thackeray. Hearty Thanx to Shri @uddhavthackeray Sir, Shri @rautsanjay61, Shri @SrBachchan Sir and Abhijit Panse.”
What was given humans’ goat right here was Nawaz referring Thackeray Sr as the ‘real King of the country? Many felt that Nawaz had gone overboard in appeasing the Shiv Sena fans with that assertion.while Bal Thackeray changed into an excursion depressure in Maharashtrian politics while he changed into alive, and his legacy can never be beaten, calling him the king of the complete us of a can be deemed as an over-announcement. here’s what Twitter has to mention about Nawaz’s tweet,

Dear @Nawazuddin_S , Bal Thackeray may be a king for you but for a majority of people and the victims of the Bombay riots you know what he was. In these times of distress if well placed actors and sportspersons will not speak out then who will? Don't be a sell-out please. https://t.co/zPdvezYeta

Up to you which films you do, what characters they portray, how those characters are etched. And your freedom to feel honored/proud.
But calling Bal Thackeray "real king of the country"? A man who, and whose party, preached hate against people from half of India?#SellitBetter https://t.co/udW4KTggCD

Dear Nawazuddin, it’s okay to appease the people who have hired you and have given you a role of a lifetime, but it’s advisable not to make statements that exaggerate facts so much.
Thackeray, directed by Abhijit Panse and produced by Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut, will hit the screens on January 23 next year.
