As an actor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has come a long way from supporting cast in Sarfarosh (1999) to becoming one of the biggest actors in India today. At the trailer launch of the Balasaheb Thackeray biopic, Thackeray, helmed by Sanjay Raut, Nawazuddin Siddiqui spoke about essaying the most difficult role of his career. “When I first heard that I am doing the role of Balasaheb Thackeray, it felt like the best moment of my life! This has been the most challenging role for me,” said the National Award-winning actor.

It goes without saying that portraying the role of one of the most potent and influential men of the country, would come with its own hurdles. But looking at Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s onscreen aplomb, one cannot gauge the kind of effort that must have gone into the prepping for this role. As they started to shoot, and as Nawazuddin Siddiqui got into the skin of the character, and saw a sea of people shouting Balasaheb Thackeray’s name, he grew anxious. Giving us a candid insight, he shared, “I couldn’t ever imagine the difficulty this role would offer and I started growing nervous with time. The director helped me ease into the role while we were shooting.”

Godrej India Culture Lab's Manto Now panel with Nazia Erum, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Rasika Dugal and Rakhshanda Jalil

Godrej India Culture Lab and Viacom18 Motion Pictures hosted a special conversation based upon Manto, a film by Nandita Das as a precursor to the national release. It included presence of the film’s cast members Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Rasika Dugal, literary historian Rakhshanda Jalil, as well as Nazia Erum, author of ‘Mothering a Muslim’.

Based on the idea of freedom of expression, the film revolves around Saadat Hasan Manto, the skilled satirist and chronicler of the chaos of Partition who was put on trial six times for his provocative writings. The prolific writer was thus invariably a champion of free speech. He once famously said, “If you find my stories dirty, the society you are living in is dirty.” Read more
