The 'Babumoshai Bandookbaaz' star who was on the headlines for losing the role of Shiv Sena founder Balasaheb Thackeray in upcoming biopic on the controversial leader, is indeed playing the most challenging roles of his career.
Amitabch Bachchan who earlier have tried to portray the essence of Balasaheb in 'Sarkar' has launched the teaser of the upcoming biopic in Mumbai with Uddhav Thackeray and Sanjay Raut also present at the event.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui who is well-known for his versatile quality in the industry, looks every bit of Thackeray at the first look of the flick. It seems that the actor has left no stone unturned to do all the justice with his role as Bal Thackeray.

Talking about their upcoming project journalist and member of Sanjay Raut said, "Balasaheb Thackeray has given so much to the sons of the soil, to our state… to our country. The film aims to be fitting tribute, and is a magnum opus, a great biopic to suit his stature, the way he lived. The film will be shot in Marathi and Hindi and will be dubbed into English and various other languages worldwide," reported The Indian Express.
"The fight against injustice towards our people… our state… and the sons of our soil is no less than the efforts of Mahatama Gandhi, Lokmanya Tilak and Nelson Mandela. Balasaheb’s life was so dramatic that he ignited the society for justice, and for generations to come. He rewrote history of the city, the state and the nation with his brush strokes. This is a fitting tribute to the man who stood tallest," Raut added.
