The film ‘Thackeray’ signed by Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Amrita Rao

It has no political agenda

Rao asserted that the only reason behind releasing the film in January was that 23rd January is Bal Thackeray’s birth date.

“From the very starting, we were told by the filmmakers that this film has to come out on his birthday because that would make his fans and followers very happy,” she said.

In an exclusive interaction with ANI, Siddiqui, who will play the role of Bal Thackeray in the film and Amrita Rao, who will feature as his wife Mina Thackeray, refuted claims that the film has been made for political benefits ahead of upcoming election.

Speaking about the preparation that went into building his character of Bal Thackeray, Siddiqui asserted that while a lot of material for his research on Thackeray came from the videos on the internet, Sanjay Raut was an integral source of information as well
