‘Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat’: Akshay Kumar transforms into Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, starts shoot

‘I am lucky to be able to play the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj ji,’ wrote Akshay Kumar

Actor Akshay Kumar has started shooting the first schedule of his debut Marathi film ‘Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat’ in Mumbai. He took to social media to make the announcement and wrote, ‘Today I am starting the shooting of Marathi film ‘Vedat Marathe Veer Daudale Sat’ in which I am lucky to be able to play the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj ji. I will do my best by taking inspiration from her life and blessing of Mother Jijau! Keep your blessings on us.’

The actor also shared a video in which he is seen dressed as the legendary Maratha warrior.

‘Vedat Marathe Veer Daudale Saat’, directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, is a Marathi period drama based on the life of Chhatrapati Shivaji. The film will also star Jay Dudhane, Utkarsha Shinde, Vishal Nikam, Virat Madke, Hardik Joshi, Satya, Akshay, Nawab Khan, and Praveen Tarde.

In an earlier press conference in Mumbai, Akshay called it a ‘huge task’ to play Shivaji Maharaj on screen and thanked politician Raj Thackeray for advising him to take up the role.

‘I am playing the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. I got the role because of Raj Thackeray, he told me, ‘Akshay you should do this role’. And I was taken aback. It is a huge deal for me to play Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. It is a huge task and I would like to say I will give my best,’ he said.

‘Vedat Marathe Veer Daudale Saat’ is produced under the banner of Qureshi Production. It will release in cinemas on Diwali 2023 in Marathi, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
