Don’t know if I’m suitable for Bal Thackeray biopic: Akshay
Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar said that he doesn’t know if he is suitable to play late Shiv Sena founder Balasaheb Thackeray in his biopic, something he feels that the makers need to decide.
At a media interaction for the success of his recent film Rustom, Akshay was asked if he would like to play the character of Balasaheb and he said, “I don’t know whether I suit the character first of all, whoever makes it will have to first think if I suit the character or not.”
When asked which actor he feels will be suitable, he said, “I don’t know about it. Rather people should think about it, because it is not a small personality, it’s a big personality that you’re talking about.”
Akshay’s name is one of the names that has cropped up for the biopic. Thackeray’s grandson Rahul and his daughter-in-law Smita are in the process of making a biopic on the late leader.
About the trend of biopics, Akshay said, “I think biopics have been picked up by audience in a good way and it’s great that biopic is about a great person’s story which comes in front of the audience and they would love to see how they became great, so it’s good to make biopics.
