Mahesh Manjrekar Turns Down Thackeray Biopic Project

Acclaimed filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar, known for making films such as Vaastav, Me Shivajiraje Bhosale Boltoy, Kaksparsh and Kutumb, to name a few, has reportedly turned down an offer to make a biopic on late Sena leader Bal Thackeray.

It seems that supporters of the Thackeray family were keen to have a biopic on the iconic leader and had approached Mahesh Manjrekar, asking him to helm the project. However, Manjrekar politely refused the offer, saying that he has nothing to do with politics and that he would like to stay as far as possible from it.

Manjrekar was last seen playing the role of a cop in Sanjay Gupta's Shootout At Wadala.
