Yes, it is confirmed. Nawazuddin Siddiqui would be playing Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray on screen. The biopic, directed by MNS leader Abhijeet Panse, has been written by Rajya Sabha MP and Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut, who will also produce the film. The first look of the film has been just released in which actor par excellence Nawazuddin Siddiqui is seen dressed as Thackeray. The look is eerily familiar to say the least. Check it out here:

While the irony of the actor playing the charismatic, controversial and hugely popular leader is not lost, we expect it would be a treat to watch just because of Nawaz.
