Nawazuddin is sporting a striking resemblance to the charismatic cartoonist-turned-firebrand politician and Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackerey in the teaser, the first look truly leaves us amused. The one-minute-and-forty-second-long teaser opens with amazing music score and realistic cinematography, an opening couldn’t get more dramatic and grand than this. The teaser is mirroring the life of the much loved (and feared) politician of Maharashtra.
The first shot we see in this teaser is of an infant howling in what seems to be a slum area. Cries soon drowned as people rush past it to torch the place. The teaser of the movie ends with a larger-than-life Nawazuddin Siddiqui taking up the stage as Bal Thackeray to address a great gathering of people.
Written by journalist and Member of Parliament Sanjay Raut, ‘Thackeray’ is directed by Abhijit Panse and will release on January 23, 2019.
