Nawaz starts preparing for Thackeray


Nawazuddin Siddiqui has a strong resemblance to the late Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray as he portrays the political figure in the latter’s upcoming biopic titled ‘Thackeray’. However, getting the Marathi language correct is something that Nawa is working hard on. “I have got the opportunity to portray such a great personality. Everyone must be wondering how I will speak in Marathi but let me assure you all that Balasaheb Thackeray will inspire and bless me. And his favorite language Marathi will also love me,” quips Nawaz fluently in Marathi. The film is directed by Abhijit Panse and will hit the screens on January 23, 2019.
