On Tuesday, the country celebrated Shivaji Jayanti and on this occasion, a lot of Bollywood celebs, as well as politicians, took to social media to remember the great king. One of the celebs was Riteish Deshmukh. The actor took to Instagram to share a video of himself in which we can see him talking about Shivaji Maharaj as he paints a portrait of the king. We must say that apart from being a good actor, Riteish is a good painter too.
Riteish, who is gearing up for the release of Total Dhamaal, is also doing a biopic on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj which will be in Marathi. He will be starring as the king in the film and will also be producing it. The movie is yet to go on floors, but Riteish intends to make it soon. Salman Khan, who had done a cameo in Riteish’s Marathi film Lai Bhaari, too has been roped in to do a cameo in the biopic and actor himself has confirmed this. A couple of years ago, Salman had said, "I'm doing the film with Riteish. I did Lai Bhaari and I had told him I wanted to do another film in the language. Now, I literally forced myself into this film."

सर्वांना शिवजयंतीच्या हार्दिक शुभेच्छा!! #shivjayanti #tribute
We recently saw the biopic on Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, a great warrior and it will surely be amazing to watch Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj's biopic on the big screen.
