Har Har Mahadev

Zee Studio’s  ‘Har Har Mahadev’ is only a few days away from its big Diwali release and the audience can not wait to watch the story of gallant and courageous Maratha warrior Baji Prabhu Deshpande who was martyred for Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The stalwart act of laying down his life in the service of his King has made Baji Prabhu Deshpande’s vitality a legacy that should be talked about and narrated over and over again. Hence, to re-narrate the epic tale of his life, director Abhijeet Deshpande had to dedicate 10 long years in the research and development of the script of ‘Har Har Mahadev’. 

Director Abhijeet Deshpande wrote the script in 2012 and since then the script has seen several changes. Talking about the same, he said 

“For the last four years, I have been involved in the making of the film. It's a 10-year journey, but I am happy with the product. I had decided that whenever I make a film on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, we needed to have a certain grandeur and a certain scale, which you don't often see in films based on Maharaj. Because of the technical team, because of the support of my producer, and my actors, I have been able to come up with a scale which I can be proud of. Of course, the content is something that is of prime importance. But in today’s day, if we want to make a film a great theatrical experience, we need work on the technical aspect of it. On the canvas of it, music and grandeur. I am happy that whatever has come about is a product that we all will feel proud of.”


The film narrates a very strong and inspirational story of a real battle which was led by Bajiprabhu in our history,  where only 300 soldiers fought off the 12000 enemy army and won, albeit paying for the victory with their lives, on the other hand, it will be available to the mass audience across the nation being Marathi cinema's 1st multilingual film.


Produced by ZEE Studios and Directed by Abhijeet Deshpande. The film stars Subodh Bhave, Sharad Kelkar, Amruta Khanvilkar and Sayli Sanjeev in the leads. The film is all set to hit the theatres on 25th October 2022.
