The movie is already in controversy because Nawaz is a muslim actor playing the role of the fierce politician.
However, Sanjay Raut dismissed those claims telling mid-day, “Balasaheb never hated Muslims. He was never against them. His fight was against those who supported Pakistan, and encouraged terrorism, irrespective of their religion.”
In what appears to be the biggest hint of Siddiqui’s association with the project, he adds, “We have cast an actor [for his talent], not his religion.” The filmmaker Abhijit Panse is a member of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena.
