The most awaited biopic, Balasaheb Thackeray has already aroused curiosity amongst everyone much before its teaser was released. Starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Balasaheb Thackeray, the biopic is all set to release next year.
Now we got to know that the Main Hoon Na actress Amrita Rao has been roped in to play the role of Meenatai. For the uninitiated, Meena Thackeray was the wife and support system of Balasaheb Thackeray.
This movie will mark Amrita’s return on the big screen after 5 years.
According to a leading daily, explaining about director Sanjay Raut’s choice of having Amrita on board as Meenatai, he said that the actress’ face reflects the same innocence that was on Meenatai’s face. Despite her soft nature, Raut considers her as the pillar of Thackeray’s life and his family. He believes that her strong nature held them all together, thereby also helping Thackeray’s party Shiv Sena.
This will be the first time Amrita will be seen opposite Nawazuddin on the big screen.
Balasaheb Thackeray biopic is expected to hit the big screens on January 23.
