Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is not only a king for Marathi person. The name brings alive history, glory, pride and victory along with this name. Marathi theatre, cinema and TV industry has been fascinated with Shivaji Maharaj for a long time. We have a strong tradition of film based on Shivaji Maharaj or on the incidents based on his life.
Adding one more name to this long list will be Lai Bhari-fame Riteish Deshmukh. Genelia Deshmukh recently tweeted about producing a film based on Shivaji Maharaj’s life. This film will be produced by Mumbai Film Company, owned by Riteish and Genelia. Genelia earlier produced Lai Bhari – a blockbuster film in 2014.

It is speculated that Riteish will be playing role of Shivaji Maharaj in this film. However, the makers have kept any other details under tight wraps for the time being.
We wish Mumbai Film Company makes us a fantastic and larger-than-life film on our favorite Shivaji Maharaj.
