There is one more biopic coming! This time it is about Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray. Thackeray’s grandson Rahul and his daughter-in-law Smita are currently in the process of making a biopic on the late leader, according to reports.
Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar when asked at a media interview whether he would like to play Thackeery, he said that is something the filmmakers need to decide. “I don’t know whether I suit the character first of all, whoever makes it will have to first think if I suit the character or not,” he added.
When asked which actor he feels will be suitable, he said, “I don’t know about it. Rather people should think about it, because it is not a small personality, it’s a big personality that you’re talking about. So I cannot answer it like this.”
Akshay is one of the names that has cropped up for the biopic.
About the trend of biopics, Akshay said, “I think biopics have been picked up by audience in a good way and it’s great that biopic is about a great person’s story which comes in front of the audience and they would love to see how they became great, so it’s good to make biopics. Biopics work for India, so it’s good that India is making it.”
Akshay will next be seen in the film Jolly LLB 2 and the sequel of Rajinikanth’s Robot. – CINEWS
