‘Chhatrasal’ is the first such historical drama of its kind which is based on the anonymous warrior Maharaj Chhatrasal of Bundelkhand. Set in the background of 16th-17th century, this epic saga will take you to that era, which will refresh the era of terrorist rule of Aurangzeb. This story will take the audience through the life of Aurangzeb, who has the passion to rule the whole of India, and the hero who stood against and challenged his terrorist regime.
Even in childhood, Chhatrasal knew that he had to free his land from the Mughals. When he grew up, the fire of revenge for the death of his parents was burning inside him. His intention to fight the Mughals and get India’s independence became stronger than before. It is a story of courage, vengeance and dedication. The trailer of ‘Chhatrasal’ has now been released and the show is going to go live on MX Player on July 29. While Neena Gupta plays the lead role of the period drama, Jitin Gulati will be seen in the lead role of Raja Chhatrasal, while well-known actor Ashutosh Rana will play the dreaded Aurangzeb.
Jitin Gulati says about his character, ‘It is a matter of pride to get an opportunity to play such an important historical character. There are some stories that need to be told and this story is also similar. Chhatrasal was the hero of Central India. He was the flag bearer of independence in that era in which no one had the courage to challenge the Mughal Empire and its huge army. Our rich history and heritage is maintained only by such stories. I hope the audience will be inspired by the story of this unsung warrior.
Speaking about this, Ashutosh Rana says, ‘Aurangzeb is one of the most dangerous and powerful rulers in history. Although I have played negative characters in the past, it is challenging to play such a character. But at the same time it gives me an opportunity to understand different types of acting genres. I hope the audience will be able to experience the heroism of Maharaj Chhatrasal with this web series. Directed by Anadi Chaturvedi, the show stars Vaibhavi Shandilya, Manish Wadhwa, Anushka Luhar, Rudra Soni in lead roles. It will be available to watch for free on MX Player from July 29.
