Web Desk: As the teaser of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s upcoming movie Thackeray released, it has been largely appreciated, but some people criticized the decision of choosing Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the role of the founder of the Hindu right-wing Marathi ethnocentric party.
Nawazuddin quoted, “My job is to act. So whatever character I get, I will play that with all my acuity. I will Play the role of Balasaheb Thackeray with the same intensity that I had while playing Manto,”
“Your thinking or your political viewpoint can be different but because I am an actor, I will follow the process which I have acquired with my experience in acting, to play any role.” He added.
While talking about the recent intolerance over the content of films in the country, he said, “I feel very much scared sometimes. I was never abused so much in social media before. Whenever I tweet, someone or the other has an opinion. The truth is we are becoming so narrow-minded nowadays that we are not ready to accept anything.”
