Amidst KBC Mess, Sharad Kelkar Hailed For Correcting A Journalist Who Called Chhatrapati Shivaji As ‘Shivaji’
The recent Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 controversy is afresh in our minds. It so happened that the makers of this Amitabh Bachchan show, though unintentionally, referred to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj as only ‘Shivaji’ in the option for one of their questions. This move brought the entire channel a lot of flak and as a consequence of the same; the netizens demanded everyone to boycott Sony TV. Well, things seemed to have cooled down after the channel, including host the Amitabh Bachchan, issued an apology. Now, a similar instance took place during the trailer launch of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior but the way Sharad Kelkar handled it; he has simply won the internet.

At the event, as soon as the reported asked Sharad Kelkar - who plays the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in the film - “Sharad Kelkar, aap Shivaji ka role play kar rahe hai?” the actor immediately cut her question and corrected her by adding, “Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.”This, unsurprisingly, created frenzy in the hall and everyone started clapping and whistling for Kelkar. Well, the internet seemed to be on the similar lines, as netizens couldn’t stop lauding Sharad for his action.

Raving praises for the actor, a user wrote, “Okay, now I am definitely going to see the movie #Tanhaji, where the role of Shivaji Maharaj has been played by an actor who understands in whose shoes he is standing! Respect Sharad Kelkar,” while another fan tweeted, “Thank you & well done @SharadK7 sir!! Video of the day. The name "Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj" is enough to give goosebumps to us.”
