The trailer launch event of the late Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray was held on December 26. The event was highly anticipated and the star of the film Nawazuddin Siddiqui was, of course, present at the occasion. But other than the film team, the iconic leader's son Uddhav Thackeray was also in attendance.
In a video that has surfaced on social media, the chief of Hindu nationalist Shiv Sena party can be seen arriving for the trailer launch of the film. Right before his arrival, one can see huge clamour as the media vied to get a glimpse of him as he walked into the IMAX theatre in Wadala where the event is being held. As soon as he arrived on scene the crowd gathered there started cheering and chanting his name as firecrackers also went off. Uddhav was accompanied by Nawaz and the film's director Abhijit Panse and actress Amrita Rao, who is playing the wife of the ex-Shiv Sena leader Meena Tai Thackeray. The team also posed for the cameras behind an impressive portrait of the late leader.
Meanwhile, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has raised objections to the upcoming Bollywood biopic. According to the makers of the movie, CBFC has raised objections on four dialogues and two scenes and have asked them to make necessary changes. The makers of the film also stated that they are trying to solve the issue with CBFC, according to the law and are hopeful that it will soon be sorted out.
Other than all this, a promo video was also released ahead of the trailer launch where Sanjay Dutt, one of the biggest Bollywood actors can be seen talking about the late Shiv Sena party leader. He talked about what he learnt from him as he said, "I just learnt one thing is that, love your country. And be tough enough and honest enough to speak the truth. And that's what he did, all his life." The video then cuts to real-life clips of the iconic leader as he is giving one of his iconic speeches as thousands listen to him with rapt attention.
