Big B’s Words On The Launch Of “Thackeray” Biopic Teaser, With Loads Of Emotions
The biopic’s teaser was launched on Thursday of late Shiv Sena’s leader Balasaheb Thackeray. It was launched by Amitabh Bachchan, known as the “Thackeray”. On this occasion, he said that this opportunity is very special for him as he had a very personal and family relationship with Balasaheb. Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray, Party Leader, and Spokesperson Sanjay Raut were also present on the occasion of Teaser launch. The film’s producer himself is Sanjay Raut and the film direction is handled by Abhijit Panse.
While sharing another story, Amitabh said, “When I was injured during the shooting of the film Coolie in 1982, I was unconscious in Bengaluru for a few days and later on it was decided that I would now be shifted to Mumbai in unconscious condition through the plane. I sent to Mumbai. It was raining that day. I had to go straight to the Breach Candy Hospital from the airport but at that time there was no emergency vehicle available owing to heavy rains. At that time, I was brought to the hospital through Balasaheb’s Shivsena ambulance. If the emergency help didn’t had arrive on right time, then my condition would get worse.”
Big B further said, “Many times when an allegation was made on me, Balasaheb would call me and ask what all this hearing are? Is it true? Come home, I want to talk to you. In the same manner, when a charge came to me, he called me to his house with the whole family. Asked now, is this true? If I did not say anything, he used to suggest that, there is no need to panic at all. There is a tempest situation going on outside now when it stops, go out to tell your point, I will stand by you.”
Amitabh further said, “When Balasahab was taking his last breath, then Uddhav Ji gave me the opportunity to go to his room. Apart from Balasaheb, one of his associates, Aditya and I were in that room. A man whom we have seen so much, he was lying on the bed today and couldn’t speak anything, it was an unbearable scene. We were constantly praying that something magical would happen, but at the black day rised. I would never forget that moment. I never wanted to see Balasaheb in that condition.”
After the launch of the teaser, Nawazuddin Siddiqui who is cast for the role of Balasaheb Thackeray’s in Biopic thanked all chairpersons through social media.
