Amitabh Bachchan: Chhatrapati Shivaji’s Father in Vinay’s Next

If, Sanjay Dutt will be playing a role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, then guess who can be father of Shivaji Maharaj. It’s quite obvious that only Bollywood megastar, Amitabh Bachchan can play this role. I am talking about renowned Marathi filmmaker Vinay Apte’s forthcoming film based on the the life of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

Though, Amitabh has not yet confirmed, but if things go according to Vinay’s plans, Amitabh Bachchan will play a role of Shahaji Bhonsle. Gulshan Grover will play antagonist Adil Shah in the flick. Gulshan Grover said about the project,

“The research team believes that Shivaji Maharaj who was forever riding horses and spent years fighting on the battlefield must have been quite muscular. In this film, he will also be shown as this 5.8 feet tall man instead of 5.4 ft as is widely believed.”

The film will go on the floors in October for which a set will be erected at a film studio in Karjat.
