On the occasion of the birth anniversary of the Maratha empire Dharmaveer Sambhaji Maharaj, the motion poster of the film ‘Chhava – The Great Warrior’ was released on Friday. The film is based on his life.
The film is based on the book titled ‘Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj’ written by Dr Jaysingrao Pawar. Presented by Malhar Pictures, produced by Sunny Rajani and directed by Rahul Janardan Jadhav, ‘Chhava – The Great Warrior’ encapsulates the saga of Sambhaji Maharaj’s adventure and bravery.
Talking about the film, director Rahul said, “Shambhu Raje is a true youth icon. The first prince of the Swarajya, who began studying politics from the age of nine, had a strong command over martial arts, literature and fourteen languages. I wanted to make a movie on a real superhero rather than a superhero of my imagination.”
Speaking about the legendary warrior prince, historian and novelist Dr. Jaysingrao Pawar shared, “Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj is a symbol of boundless sacrifice, extreme endurance, patriotism and martyrdom. He was a shadow of the Marathas with a deep obsession with various sciences, scriptures and Puranas. I am confident that this movie will acquaint the current generation with the power of Shambhurajya.”
The film’s producer Sunny Rajani added, “The world’s first bulletproof jacket was invented by Sambhaji Maharaj and the first biological battle was fought by Shambhuraj with intellect. He bent the Mughals and the Portuguese, made the British dance and drowned Siddi in the river. He was invincible till his last breath and did not lose a single battle. And we are fortunate and truly glad enough to make a film about his dynamic life.”
The makers will soon reveal the lead actor of the film for its title role.
