Vicky Kaushal Will Play Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj In Laxman Utekar’s Next Film

Actor Vicky Kaushal will essay the role of Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj in the upcoming project.

Bollywood actor Vicky Kaushal is keen on doing his third historical drama helmed by Laxman Utekar. The actor had earlier signed Takht and Immortal Ashwatthama but the projects were put on the back burner. This is the third time Vicky has been ready to do a historical movie.

He will essay the role of Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj in the upcoming project. The second Chhatrapati of the Maratha Empire and the eldest son of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Sambhaji Bhosale also called Sambhaji Raje ruled from 1681 to 1689. The writing of the film is completed and the film is currently in the pre-production stage. Vicky has agreed to do the film and the official announcement will be made sometime later. 

According to the Peeping Moon forum, the project will be produced by Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films. “Laxman Utekar, who has previously directed light-hearted films like Luka Chuppi and Mimi, has been planning to make a film on Sambhaji Raje (as Sambhaji is formally called) for a long time. It’s an ambitious passion project that he is finally set to bring to life, and he is leaving no stone unturned to make it as grand as possible. He has been working on this project for the past six months and has brought on board a team of top-notch creative and technical talents. The writing is finished, and Laxman and his team are currently neck-deep in pre-production. Dinesh Vijan is giving his full support and has sanctioned a huge budget to make this film a truly visual spectacle,” the source told the forum. 

On the work front, Vicky Kaushal will next be seen in Meghna Gulzar’s Sam Bahadur. He has another project with Laxman Utekar alongside Sara Ali Khan.
