The Vivaah actress Amrita Rao will soon be seen essaying the role of Balasaheb Thackeray’s wife Meenatai in the upcoming film with Nawazuddin Siddiqui as the Shiv Sena supremo, according to Mumbai Mirror. Producer Sanjay Raut spoke about casting Rao, “Meenatai was never in politics but she was the lady who held the Thackeray family together as also Shiv Sena, the party Balasaheb formed. She was his backbone and the embodiment of matrutwa (motherhood). When you see her on screen, you will know that she is best suited for the role. Her role spans almost three decades, from 1969 to 1995. Amrita shared a great rapport with Nawaz and has finished shooting for her portions.”

Thackeray has been reportedly shot in Hindi, Marathi, and dubbed in English. This is the third biopic for Siddiqui after Ketan Mehta’s Manjhi and Nandita Das’ Manto.

Rao was last seen onscreen in 2013’s Singh Saab the Great, helmed by Anil Sharma and starring Sunny Deol and Urvashi Rautela, as well as Prakash Jha’s political drama Satyagraha, which also had Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal in pivotal roles.

She debuted in Bollywood with the movie Ab Ke Baras in the year 2001 but came to limelight with the college romance drama pack Ishq Vishk in the year 2003, in which she was featured against Shahid Kapoor.

Known for the innocence and grace, Amrita Rao has a lot of hit movies under her name like Masti opposite Vivek Oberoi, Main Hoon Na where she starred with Shah Rukh Khan, Sunil Shetty, and Sushmita Sen, Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi, where she was featured with Shahid Kapoor again. After a long break, Amrita is all set to bring herself on track with this upcoming biopic. The biopics are coming out as the new trend and hit factor of Bollywood therefore, this is the most appropriate time for the pretty lady to step in with a comeback.
