Sony Entertainment launches historical series 'Peshwa Bajirao'

MUMBAI: Sony Entertainment Television is bringing to television viewers the glorious life of India’s only undefeated warrior/commander -- Peshwa Bajirao, his unconventional ways, his principles in life, his passion and his ideologies.

A warrior such as him is not born; he was nurtured and raised with values& principles by his mother Radhabai and the astute strategies of war with a fearless approach to life were ingrained into him by his father Balaji Vishwanath. It was in the court of Maharaja Shahu where he learned the art of politics and diplomacy which made him a conqueror of both land and heart.

Peshwa Bajirao’s short but impactful life makes for a riveting story.

Sony Entertainment Television EVP & Business Head Danish Khan said, "The inspirational and compelling story of Peshwa Bajirao is relevant to our lives and times. His love for the motherland, his unconventional approach in tackling challenges and his upbringing makes for a delightful and motivational television watch. We are delighted to partner Sphereorigins' Sunjoy Waddhwa, Nilanjana Purkayasstha and their young creative team to bring this story alive.”

Sphereorigins CMD Sunjoy Waddhwa said, "We are very happy to be associated with Sony TV for the historical series “Peshwa Bajirao”. The show is based on the fierce Maratha warrior. The story focuses on the life of a legendary Peshwa, from his childhood to a great and fierce 'yodha'. We have infused all the authenticity of the story on the sets, as well as in the costumes, jewellery, armour, furniture etc. We, at Sphereorigins, are excited at the launch of the show and are optimistic that the audience will enjoy it”.

Rudra Soni, who will be seen as Bajirao, said, “I am extremely delighted to play the great warrior, Peshwa Bajirao. It is a moment of pride to be associated with this show as I was very fond of playing this character right from the time I did the movie Bajirao Mastani in which I played young Nanasaheb. I was really inspired after reading the story of Peshwa Bajirao and the Marathi legacy in depth.”

Anuja Sathe, who plays the role of Radhabai, says, “It’s a huge responsibility to play the role of Bajirao’s mother, Radhabai, and I am sure people will like the authenticity we are offering. I am glad people are anticipating and expecting one of the most riveting story telling on Indian television and Peshwa Bajirao is going to be one.”

Manish Wadhwa, to be seen as Balaji Vishwanath, says, “Given the grandness and victorious story of Peshwa Bajirao, the responsibility of parenting and making Baji a warrior was a challenge. I hope the audience connect with the show as a lot of effort has been put behind it.”
