Shiv Sena party member Sanjay Raut and producer of Balasaheb Thackeray's biopic has opened up about the film's clash with Manikarnika and Super 30. The Thackeray biopic has Nawazuddin Siddiqui essaying the late Shiv Sena leader's role on the big screen. Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, based on Rani Laxmibai stars Kangana Ranaut in the lead role. On the other hand, Super 30 stars Hrithik Roshan and it traces mathematician Anand Kumar's journey. All the three films are releasing on January 25, 2019. 

When Mumbai Mirror asked Sanjay Raut about the biopic's clash with Manikarnika and Super 30, he said, "I can’t stop other filmmakers from releasing their films on the same weekend, but no matter how many films come up against us, the country is waiting for Thackeray. Nawazuddin Siddiqui has played him extremely well and while people are aware that Balasaheb was a politician, cartoonist and an orator, we are showcasing his rise from a common man to a superman which makes for interesting viewing."

Raut further stated that no matter what happens, they are not going to shift the release date of this Thackeray biopic. "We were the first to announce the release and I’m not going to shift the date come what may," said the politician.

Well, along with these three films Emraan Hashmi's Cheat India is also releasing on January 25, 2019. After a long time, so many films will be releasing on the same day (until anyone changes the release date of their film). It will be interesting to see which film manages to win big at the box office.
