Mumbai: Akshay Bardapurkar’s Planet Marathi and Piiyush Singh’s Golden Ratio Films have collaborated with UK-based independent production house Black Hangar Studios for a first-ever Marathi-Hollywood film "Moghul Mardini Chhatrapati Tararani." Directed by Rahul Jadhav, the film will be produced in Marathi and English and it will feature Sonalee Kulkarni in the lead role.

Based on the life of the warrior queen Chhatrapati Tararani who fought against the Mughals, Nizamshahi, Aadilshahi, Qutubshahi, Dutch, British, Portuguese, and Siddis, the story of the greatness of Maratha women, Marathi pride, and Swarajya, said the statement.

“Chhatrapati Tararani is going to be a golden page in the history of Marathi cinema. Planet Marathi and Golden Ratio are proud to take the story of the Maratha warrior queen to the world. This will be the first and one of the biggest Marathi-Hollywood films to go on floors with an international film studio,” said Planet Marathi CMD Akshay Bardapurkar. “It is too soon to reveal more details about the film but we have a talented blend of filmmakers, musicians, and artists that are working hard to bring this beautiful presentation to our Marathi audiences. I strongly believe this film has the potential to take Marathi cinema at a newer height,” he added.

Black Hangar Studios has to its credit Hollywood productions such as "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," "Dark Tide," "The Grand Tour," and "24: Live Another Day," as well as the Indian superhero film "Ra.One," released in 2011. “After working with the Indian Sci-fi genre we are excited to create the experience for a historical period drama," stated Black Hangar Studios CEO Jake Seal. "The story itself moves us and with the promise that Planet Marathi brings in filmmaking we are thrilled to see where this journey leads us. We aim to make films more engaging for global audiences irrespective of the language and medium and we are committed to making this story come alive.”

The title itself comes with a huge responsibility to us and the entire team is working to bring out the best for the viewers,” commented Golden Ratio Films co-founder Piiyush Singh.
