Thackeray movie has hit the screens yesterday. Despite lots of controversies surrounding the film, Thackeray got released in a decent number of screens across the country. However, the film received a mixed response from the critics who praised Nawazuddin Siddiqui for his outstanding efforts in portraying Thackeray. The film collected Rs. 6 crores on its opening day which is pretty decent considering the market of Nawazuddin Siddiqui and the film's budget. According to the trade analysts, the Marathi version of the film has done a good business as it is a biopic on Maharashtra's politician. Thackeray has Amrita Rao playing the female lead and is directed by Abhijit Panse.
