About Maharashtra Shahir Movie:

The film is based on the life of one the most influential Marathi folk singer, writer, and theatre actor, Krishnarao Ganpatrao Sable.

The film was announced on 3 September 2021 by director Kedar Shinde on his social media account, the birth anniversary of Shahir Sable. The film’s official motion poster was released by Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde at his official residence on 15 February 2023.

A promotional video announcing the casting of Ankush Chaudhari in the titular role was released by Raj Thackeray at the Maharashtra Day rally on May 1, 2022, at Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar. A poster announcing the casting of Sana Shinde as Bhanumati Sable was released on September 3, 2022.

Kedar Shinde who directs the film is the grandson of Shahir Sable.

Kedar Shinde along with Pratima Kulkarni, Vasundhara Sable, and Omkar Mangesh Dutt, started working on the story in 2019 and spent nearly two years in conducting research on Shahir Sable and finalising the screenplay.

Additionally, Shinde and the team conducted extensive research on storyboarding scenes, selecting locations, and designing looks and costumes to recreate the period from 1920s to 1980s.

The shooting of the film began on Vijayadashami on 5 October 2022 at Krishnarao Sable’s village Wai. The second schedule was filmed in and around Mumbai. The third schedule was shot in Baku, Azerbaijan to present Russia (then USSR) in the 1980s. The location was moved from Russia to Azerbaijan due to Russia-Ukraine War. The filming wrapped up on 27 February 2023 after shooting final scenes in Mumbai.

The film’s first song, Baharla Ha Madhumas was out on 27 February 2023, which became a viral hit on social media. The film’s title track, Jai Jai Maharashtra Majha, was released alongside a promotional video featuring 18 lead actors from the Marathi film industry in a media event by veteran politician Sharad Pawar at Yashwantrao Chavan Centre, Mumbai on 25 April 2023.

The official teaser was released on 20 March 2023 by Raj Thackeray in a media event. The official trailer was released on April 11 2023.
