‘Ram Setu’ actor begins the shooting for Mahesh Manjrekar directorial 'Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat'

Actor Akshay Kumar previously essayed the iconic role of Prithviraj in ‘Samrat Prithviraj’, but much to his dismay the film failed at the box office. Now the actor is gearing up to step into the shoes of another iconic ruler Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj for his upcoming period drama film titled ‘Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat’. The Pan-Indian film marks Akshay’s Marathi debut. 

Taking to social media, he shared a video that unveiled his first look as Shivaji Maharaj. Announcing the commencement of the shoot he wrote “Today I am starting the shooting of Marathi film 'Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat' in which I am fortunate to play the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj ji. I will do my best by taking inspiration from his life and the blessings of Maa Jijau! Keep blessing. (sic)”

In the short clip, he can be seen walking inside the royal court while donning a traditional Marathi outfit with a heavy beard and a turban while the ‘Jai Bhavani Jai Shivaji’ bg score adds up to the excitement. He captioned the post and wrote, “Jay Bhawani, Jay Shivaji (sic).”

The film is scheduled to release on Diwali 2023 in Marathi, Hindi, Tamil & Telugu. The film is helmed by actor-director Mahesh Manjrekar (Of Sarkaru Vaari Paata fame) and bankrolled by Vaseem Qureshi.
