Shahid Kapoor To Play Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj

According to sources close to the development, Shahid is in advanced talks with OMG 2 director, Amit Rai for a historic based on the life of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The film will be produced by Ashwin Varde under his banner Wakaoo Films. “Shahid and Ashwin have been in talks for a film based on the life of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj for a while now, and things are slowly falling in place. Back in the day, the duo wasn’t able to find the right director, but following multiple discussions with Amit Rai, Shahid feels that the director is the perfect fit for his epic on the legend of Indian History,” revealed a source close to the development.

The film will retell the story of one of the bravest chapters from the life of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and the makers are looking to partner with a top studio before proceeding with the pre-production process. “While Shahid has agreed in principle to spearhead the film, all the paperwork and announcements will happen once a studio comes on board the project. The makers are in talks with several top studios/financers to associate themselves with the film,” the source added.
