To mark this occasion, many Bollywood celebs took to their social media accounts and extended warm birthday wishes to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
In conversation with Khare, he expressed his feelings and gratitude in marathi language towards the greatest warrior ever born in the country
“राजे तुम्हीच अस्मिता ,तुम्ही महाराष्ट्राची शान ! जगती तुम्ही ‘छत्रपती’ तुम्हीच आमचा स्वाभिमान !!”
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj has been a source of inspiration for me. I have played the role in my early days of acting in a play. His life and legacy have always fascinated me, and I have felt a deep sense of pride in being associated with such a great historical figure. Playing the role of Shivaji Maharaj was a dream come true and it was an honour to bring his story to life on stage. Today, on Shivaji Jayanti, I have felt a strong bond with Shivaji Maharaj and his ideals. I believe we can all learn a lot from his leadership and commitment to his people. As we celebrate Shivaji Jayanti, I want everyone to remember Shivaji Maharaj and strive to uphold his legacy in our lives.
