'Lifetime experience essaying Bal Thackeray'
Mumbai: On Shiv Sena Foundation Day, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who essays the political party's late supremo Bal Thackeray in an upcoming biopic, says doing the movie is quite an experience.
Nawazuddin moved dates and schedules to be a part of Thackeray.
"Balasaheb Thackeray was a transparent personality who empowered the common man and it is a lifetime experience essaying him," Nawazuddin said in a statement.
The actor, along with Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut spent time on the sets of the Raut'ers Entertainment's movie on the eve of Shiv Sena Foundation Day.
Raut, who believes "Balasaheb made the common man into superman", said that while director Abhijit Panse was scouting for the right actor, he always had Nawazuddin's face in his mind. "I knew Nawaz bhai was the right one. And the moment I set my eyes on him when he walked into our meeting room, he was locked in my head," he said. The movie will release next year.
