The upcoming feature film based on the life of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, directed by Amit Rai and starring Shahid Kapoor, has generated much excitement within the Indian film industry. The project, produced by Vipul D Shah, Ashwin Varde, and Rajesh Bahl of Wakaoo Films, has now attracted the attention of leading Telugu film producer, Dil Raju, who is joining forces with Wakaoo Films for this ambitious venture. The decision to collaborate with Dil Raju, known for his successful ventures in the Telugu industry, indicates the scale of the project and the commitment to portraying the valor of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj authentically on screen. According to a close source, the film is envisioned as a celebration of the Maratha leader's heroic spirit, focusing on a significant chapter of his life rather than attempting to encompass his entire story in one film.

Amit Rai, the director spearheading this project, has been dedicated to bringing this vision to life, investing time in research and pre-visualization to ensure an immersive cinematic experience for the audience. With Dil Raju's involvement, the film is expected to adopt a Pan-India approach, aiming to resonate with viewers across the country. Shahid Kapoor's association with the film adds to the anticipation, as the actor is currently engaged in a diverse range of projects that showcase his versatility and commitment to challenging roles. From his ongoing project with Roshan Andrews to the mega-budget features like Ashwatthama and Shivaji, Shahid Kapoor's upcoming slate promises a mix of entertainment and substance for audiences.

As more details emerge about this eagerly awaited film, fans and industry insiders alike are eagerly anticipating the unveiling of this cinematic tribute to the legendary Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Stay tuned for further updates on this exciting collaboration and the journey of bringing this epic tale to the big screen.
