Previously, Tamil and Telugu actor Siddharth had also shared his opinion of the trailer on Twitter. He slammed the film for a dialogue spoken by Nawazuddin in a recreation of Bal Thackeray's speech. Siddharth wrote that the film romanticised the political leader for his hateful stance against the South Indian community and promoted propaganda.

Similarly, prior to Thackeray's trailer launch, Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) objected to three dialogues in the film. While one alluded to a reference to South Indians in the film, the other is related to Babri Masjid.

Thackeray, also stars Amrita Rao as Balasaheb's wife Meenatai. Directed by Abhijit Panse, the film is slated to hit the screens on 23 January, 2019
