Not Akshay Kumar But Internet Wants THIS Actor To Play Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj! Netizens Say ‘It Will Be An Insult To Our King’!
The recent years haven’t been kind to Akshay Kumar as the actor’s popularity seems to be going down the drain, courtesy of his recent releases and his upcoming projects. Well, it appears even the internet agrees with us. 

Akki’s first look from his next isn’t doing well with the netizens and the actor has invited people’s wrath from all the social media sites. 

It all conspired after the news of Akshay Kumar playing Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was out and many are turned off. Netizens have been vocal about the choice of actors for playing the Marathi King and Akshay Kumar was never in the equation. The actor’s first look from the film is out and people wonder why is Khiladi Kumar is even being considered for the role. 


He shared a picture of himself standing with joined hands in front of Shivaji Maharaj’s photo frame and wrote in caption, “आज मराठी फ़िल्म ‘वेडात मराठे वीर दौड़ले सात’ की शूटिंग शुरू कर रहा हूँ जिसमें छत्रपति शिवाजी महाराज जी की भूमिका कर पाना मेरे लिये सौभाग्य है।मैं उनके जीवन से प्रेरणा लेकर और माँ जिजाऊ के आशीर्वाद से मेरा पूरा प्रयास करुंगा! आशीर्वाद बनाए रखियेगा ।”

(Loosely Translated: Starting the shoot of the Marathi film 'Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat' today, in which I am fortunate to play the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Ji. I will try my best to take inspiration from his life and with the blessings of Maa Jijau! Keep blessing.)

Well, it's only been a few hours since the video was shared by Akshay Kumar, but the criticism around the actor and his mannerisms as the Maratha King do not seem to be ending anytime soon.

Speaking about the film - ‘Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat’ will mark Akshay Kumar’s debut in Marathi films, and third historical film after Kesari (2019) and Samrat Prithviraj (2022). 

Previously, Akshay Kumar was criticised for his looks in both of his earlier historical stints. The flak around Samrat Prithviraj made the film a box-office disaster in addition to negative reviews.
