Why is there a ruckus over the Marathi film 'Har Har Mahadev'? Know what is being opposed

The Marathi film Har Har Mahadev has been embroiled in controversies after its release. Amidst the protests, many organizations have sent legal notices to the makers. It is alleged that the facts have been shown in the film.

Controversy has erupted over the Marathi film 'Har Har Mahadev'. It is alleged that the filmmakers have tampered with history in 'Har Har Mahadev'. Many organizations together have sent a legal notice to the producer and director regarding this matter and have also asked many questions. On Monday, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former minister Jitendra Awhad protested against the film in Thane and stopped the film playing in the theatres.

What is the charge of the protestors?

In the legal notice sent to the producer-director, the institutions have alleged that many scenes shown in the film are different from history. Apart from this, it has also been alleged that the makers distorted history in the film in the name of cinematic liberty and the makers did not fulfill their responsibility properly. Organizations claim that Shivaji's empire has been described as a Marathi kingdom in the film, but in reality it was a Maratha empire.

The organizations that have sent notices mainly include Sambhaji Brigade Maharashtra, Maratha Seva Sangh and All India Shivjanti Mahotsav Samiti. These organizations are opposing the film. They say that Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj had knowledge of many languages, but in this film only his love for Marathi language was tried to explain why. Apart from this, they allege that when Afzal Khan was killed by Shivaji, Baji Prabhu Deshpande was not present there. They are in history, but their presence is visible in the film.

Who's who in the movie?

Har Har Mahadev is directed by Abhijit Deshpande. Abhijeet has also written the script of this film. The film stars actors like Sharad Kelkar, Subodh Bhave and Amrita Khanvilkar in the lead roles. Subodh Bhave played the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in this film. Apart from this, Sharad Kelkar has appeared in the role of Baji Prabhu Deshpande.
