Unveiling Uddhav Thackeray’s Journey From Advertising Photographer To Maha. CM

Thackeray's trail from a professional advertising photographer to Maharashtra's Chief Minister is not just his story

“Trail of the Tiger” tracks the personal and political journey of Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray against the backdrop of the changing narrative of Hindutva, and new connotations to Hindutva’s subnational plot, with the rise of Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a new Hindu “Hriday Samrat”.

Thackeray’s trail from a professional advertising photographer to Maharashtra’s Chief Minister is not just his story. It is the story of saffron ‘tiger’ Balasaheb Thackeray’s own family Mahabharata for political power and legacy that left the patriarch helpless during his sunset years.
