Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is a constant source of inspiration not only for Marathi people but also for other people. I consider it a matter of luck for me to play the role of such a great king.
As an actor, we always want to do some challenging roles. I am aware that my ‘dream role’ is not only challenging but also a huge responsibility. I have sincerely tried to justice. There are few roles that bring joy and satisfaction at the end of the day. This role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj has given me that happiness to contentment and a new perspective to look at life. The direction by Abhijit Deshpande, a tight screenplay and quality production value courtesy of Zee Studios, Har Har Mahadev will be released in Marathi as well as other languages, so the joy is doubled.”
