From his humble beginnings as a cartoonist with The Free Press Journal to grow to emerge as a supreme political leader the first voice of the Maharashtrians in Mumbai's political and professional landscape, to establishing the power of the Marathi manoos on the national and global platform, Balasaheb Thackeray's tale is legendary and immortal.
Needless to say, his life cannot be contained in a film unless it is penned by someone who has seen Thackeray the phenomenon at close quarters. Who else could be apt than firebrand journalist and MP Sanjay Raut, to chronicle Balasaheb's rise in the film Thackeray, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, under the banner Raut'ers Entertainment LLP, directed by Abhijit Panse.

We are glad to be associated with Thackeray the film that showcases the life journey of Balasaheb and the histrionics of Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

We welcome Carnival Motion Pictures to join us in reaching this film to millions of people the world over wanting to know more about the story of Balasaheb Thackeray, a man who brought out the super powers of the common man with his sheer presence.
