Nawazuddin Siddiqui to Star as Bal Thackeray in Upcoming Biopic
The occasional self-doubt that Nawazuddin Siddiqui displayed in the biopic of Saadat Hasan Manto is completely absent in his second biopic in four months. In Thackeray, a film based on the life and theories of Shiv Sena founder Bal Keshav Thackeray, popularly known as Balasaheb, Nawazuddin has attempted playing a controversial political figure with a big heart and total zeal.
Given the kind of biopics Bollywood produces, it wasn’t audacious to expect a botched up, idol worshipping, contorted storyline with sole aim of energising the party cadres ahead of the all-important general elections of 2019, but Thackeray surprises from the word go. It takes the popular hardliner image of Bal Thackeray and amplifies its effect by not holding back anything. There is absolutely no qualm in propagating ideas that can be divisive and can instigate violence. The makers are not hesitant in presenting Thackeray as somebody who used violence, or at least was in favour of using it, as a means to instill peace. Ironically, such a tactic takes Thackeray closer to authenticity. There isn’t any desire to please political opponents.
