The legend of Shivaji

Monday, September 05, 2011

Continuing with its philosophy of presenting path-breaking concepts, Colors is proud to showcase a historic magnum opus –‘Veer Shivaji’. The period drama, produced by Contiloe Telefilms, narrates the three-hundred year-old story of the revolutionary warrior king ‘Shivaji’ and brings forth to the audiences the lesser known facts and achievements he made during his lifetime. Besides narrating uncharted incidents from his life, the show highlights the relationship between mother-son, Jijabai and Shivaji that became an integral part of Shivaji's fight for Swarajya. The show also takes audiences through Shivaji Bhonsle’s life right from adolescence to his glorious rise as a leader which led him being rechristened as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Veer Shivaji premiered on September 2 and will be telecasted every Fridays and Saturdays at 8.30 pm only on Colors.
