According to reports, Nawazuddin Siddiqui released the teaser of his next project Thackeray — an upcoming biopic on the life of Bal Thackeray. Reports suggest that the National Award-winning actor said that ‘it is an honour for him to portray the late Shiv Sena founder-president.’

The video ends with the introduction of Nawazuddin taking up the stage as Bal Thackeray to address a rally.
The 43-year-old actor told the media, "It's an honour and pride to portray the real king of the country on screen. Here comes the teaser of Thackeray. Hearty thanks to Shri Uddhav Thackeray, Sanjay Raut, Amitabh Bachchan and Abhijit Panse."
