"How do you confirm Lord Rama was born there itself?" "If not, has he born in Pakistan?" This is the dialogue from the trailer of "Thackarey", the biopic of Balasaheb Thackarey, the Maharashtra politician who stands next to Chatrapathi Shivaji in the history of India with respect to his rebelling nature and living for the pride of Maharashtrians.
The trailer was launched by Amitabh Bachhan and Uddhav Thackarey much amidst the hype and hoopla in Mumbai. While NTR biopic is making its sound in Telugu Film Industry, it is "Thackaray" that is shaking the internet for its controversial appeal. We have to see how this film fairs at the box office, but the openings are double assured owing to the spice in the trailer, say trade pundits.
Nawazudin Siddique is playing the title role while Abhijit Panse directed it. The trailer pulled a mammoth 5.4 Million views within a day of its release.
