Fans who cherish the tales of valor of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and his army of courageous mavala’s, Sarsenapati Hambirrao will unveil a chapter of Marathi history that has rarely seen the glamour of television or cinema.
On 18 April 1674, the Maratha emperor Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj had himself conferred the title of Sarnobat and Hambirrao upon the man who was named Hansaji Mohite at birth. After the demise of Shivaji Maharaj in 1680, Hambirrao backed his elder nephew Sambhaji Maharaj to claim the Maratha throne despite the demand of courtiers to crown Rajaram. He also accompanied Sambhaji Maharaj in his campaigns against the Mughals.
Hambirrao led the battle of Wai on December 16, 1687, against the Mughals and defeated a relatively stronger Mughal army. He died after being hit by a cannonball. Hambirrao’s daughter Tarabai later married Shivaji Maharaj's son Rajaram and became the Maratha queen to give a tough fight to the Mughals.
The film will be produced by the Shivneri Foundation of Sandip Mohite a descendant of Hambirrao Mohite. Tarde is the director, screenplay writer, of Sarsenapati Hambirrao. The film is slated to release soon.
