Filmmaker Abhijeet Deshpande's Har Har Mahadev is slated to be released on the Diwali weekend this year.
The film, which is produced by Zee Studios and Shree Ganesh Marketing & Films, will tell the story of the founding of the Maratha empire in the 17th century by the warrior king Chhatrapati Shivaji.
The teaser for the film was launched on Friday, and features a voiceover by politician Raj Thackeray, who heads the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), a political party in Maharashtra.
ही ३५० वर्षानंतरच्या पहाटफुटीची गोष्ट आहे— Abhijeet Deshpande (@unbollywood) March 4, 2022
ही अठरापगड आरोळ्यांची,
ही आपल्या छत्रपतींच्या शिवगर्जनेची गोष्ट आहे.
यंदाच्या दिवाळीत झी स्टुडिओज् घेऊन येत आहे मराठी माणसाच्या हृदयात वसलेली, महाराष्ट्राच्या बुलंद आवाजातली स्वराज्याची सुवर्णगाथा @RajThackeray @ZeeStudios_#HarHarMahadev pic.twitter.com/naw9mjO6sD
The voiceover by Thackeray states that the story is from a time when Marathi-speakers had no voice.
Incidentally, Deshpande was expected to direct another film on Maratha history titled Paavan Khind, which has since been put on the backburner.
Incidentally, Har Har Mahadev is one of several films on the Maratha king's life and times. Actor Riteish Deshmukh had signed on with director Nagraj Manjule for a three-part film franchise set in the same period. Director Digpal Lanjekar has also announced his Sher Shivraj Hai, based on the life and times of the young Shivaji, this year.
Har Har Mahadev is set to clash with the Akshay Kumar-led Ram Setu. The makers are yet to reveal any details about the cast of the film.
