INDIA: Sher Shivraj is the fourth part of the Shivraj Ashtak film series, directed and written by Digpal Lanjekar. Pawankhind was the third film to be released in the last month. The film’s date announcement video has been released, and it features the film’s release date of April 22, 2022.

Shivraj Ashtak is an eight-part film series on the heroism of the Hindavi Swarajya and the legendary Mavalas. Farzand (2018) was the first, Fatteshikast (2019) was the second, Pawankhind (2022) was the third, and currently, Sher Shivraj is the fourth in the series, with Swari Afzal Khan as the tagline. This film will be based on the death of Afzal Khan, a brutal general during the reign of Barbaric Adil Shah.

The death of cruel general Afzal Khan

Adil Shah dispatched Afzal Khan with a force of 40,000 men to assault the Hindavi Swarajya. Afzal Khan destroyed any temple that came in their way at the time, including the idol of Maharaj’s family goddess, Devi Bhawani. They committed whatever heinous act they could along the route, including murders and rape, and thus occupied Tuljapur. Afzal Khan was ruthless and devious, and he was well-known for his shady methods in battle. In this manner, he ruthlessly murdered Shivaji Maharaj’s brother, Sambhaji.

Similarly, Afzal Khan used deception in an attempt to kill Shivaji Maharaj by seizing him with his massive arms. The viscous general’s fortified body was soon covered in blood, with all of his guts protruding out of his stomach, while Shivaji Maharaj used “Bagh Nakh” (Tiger claws) to kill him by shredding his body with the claws. This was the first time in Indian history that the Bagh Nakh was used in battle. Maharaj’s historic triumph not only put an end to the brutal Afzal Khan’s reign but also weakened Aadil Shah’s power.

In the date announcement video, Shivaji Maharaj is portrayed as Bhagwan Narsimha. “kalyugatlya rakshasala phadayla awatarnar krudh Narsiha,” concludes the end of the clip, implying that Narsimha would be incarnated to kill the Kali Yuga’s demon.

Chinmay Mandlekar, in the portrayal of Shivaji Maharaj, can be seen roaring like a lion towards the end of the film, similar to another installment in the Shivraj Ashtak series.

The announcement trailer does not specify the release date in other regional languages. Since this film was already completed before Pawankhind, there will be no visual upgrade compared to other films.
