Netizens troll Akshay Kumar for his portrayal as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, people slam him for lack of research

Yesterday (December 6) Khiladi Kumar aka Akshay Kumar shared his first look as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj from the upcoming period drama film ‘Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat’. As soon as the first look was unveiled the actor was severely criticised on social media. He was called out for not researching enough before starting the shoot.

In the short clip, which tracks Akshay walking inside the royal court while donning a traditional Marathi outfit with a heavy beard and a turban, netizens were fast to notice a chandelier in the frame. The chandelier has light bulbs installed throughout its rim. Netizens pointed out this gaffe and schooled the makers saying bulbs were invented much after the tenure of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, who ruled from 1630 to 1680.

Check out the Twitter reactions here:

A section of the audience also appreciated the actor for bringing the glorious history of India to the big screen. The actor was last seen in ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ where he portrayed the role of king Prithviraj.

While sharing his first look as Chhatrapati Shivaji the actor said he was honoured to essay the iconic character. Helmed by actor cum director Mahesh Manjrekar, the film will hit the big screens on Diwali 2023 in Marathi, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
