(Sarsenapati Hambirrao "is not just a movie, but a sacred feeling associated with our Chhatrapatis .. No matter its lockdown, we will express our feeling through the cinema.. soon..)”. Gahmeer summed up the post with many tags to thank the team of “Sarsenapati Hambirrao”. The fans like the persona of Gasmeer Mahajani as the Chhatrapati and praising him with words of appreciation.
