Soham Shah to make big budget 3D film on life of Shivaji Maharaj

His last directorial venture Luck was a damp squib at the Box Office but that hasn’t deterred Soham Shah from going ahead with yet another mega project. The buzz is that Soham is all set to make a big budget 3D extravaganza based on the life and times of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Nilesh Rane (son of politician Narayan Rane) and V.L.Satyam are the producers of this big budget film.


Soham is ecstatic because he has finally started work on his dream project. Says the director, “It’s an honour to be a part of Nilesh Rane’s company. It’s a great combination to have Nileshji & V.L.Satyam as producers who can share your vision to bring the epic story together on big screen with the available international technical support. It is one of my most ambitious projects, a story that is the epitome of heroism, never told on the big screen.”


The director will take around two months to complete the draft that he has been working on since more than a year now. It is said that two mega stars are being considered to play the roles of Shivaji Maharaj and Aurangzeb.


The movie will be a 3-D film, with special effects done by the crew straight from Hollywood. The same crew has worked on the special effects in several Hollywood movies including the film Gladiator. It is said that this film will be a visual spectacle in the genre of films like 300, Robin Hood and the latest hit Prince of Persia.


V.L. Satyam, one of the producers of the film, says, “We are happy to have Soham on board, as he has a huge vision that can do justice to a subject like this. Also being a new generation director his story telling will set new standards to our cinema. This is the beginning of Nileshji’s banner and we have bigger plans to take it to another level.”


Well we hope Soham finds some ‘luck’ with this mega venture.
