Thackeray is a biographical film written and directed by Abhijit Panse, made simultaneously in Marathi and Hindi. It follows the life of Balasaheb Thackeray, the founder of the Shiv Sena Party. Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the titular role of Thackeray. The film released on 25 January 2019 on the 93rd birthday of Bal Thackeray.
The recent biopic film Thackeray is doing average box office business across India after getting good reviews from critics and audience. The film got leaked on the first day of release itself and has shocked everyone. Now the movie got leaked in both Marathi and Hindi languages online and will further affect the performance of the film.
Thackeray collected 23 Crore INR in India for the opening weekend and doing decent business at the weekdays’ box office. It is now highly doubtful that the film crosses breakeven overall and clashing with Manikarnika is another issue for the film and so is the piracy matter which is also the reason for the poor reception for the film.
