Shahid Kapoor to play the lead role

Other attempts to capture the story of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj
Various attempts have been made to make a movie on this heroic historical figure’s life story for a long time, but none of them have gone on floors yet. Actor Riteish Deshmukh has also decided to make a multi-lingual film on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, which would star him in the lead role. There were some rumors about Ali Abbas Zafar doing a movie on this warrior with megastar Salman Khan, but there is no confirmation.
