Veer Shivaji (English: Brave Shiva) was an Indian historical drama series that aired on Colors TV. The show focuses on the life of Shivaji, the 17th century founder of the Maratha Kingdom.[1] It premiered on 2 September 2011 and was produced by Contiloe Telefilms, who had earlier created the historical drama Jhansi Ki Rani on Zee TV. Due to the instant success and popularity and with TRP of more than 2.60,[citation needed] the show timing were extended to five days a week (Monday to Friday at 8:30 pm) from 3 October 2011.[2]

After the introduction of adult Shivaji (from Paras Arora to Dr. Amol Kolhe), the drama's target rating points began to dip drastically. The show was abruptly ended on 25 May 2012.[3][citation needed]

Story[edit]

The historical drama traces the glorious life of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. It showcases his valor, his love for his country and how he achieved the dream of Hindavi Swarajya by defeating all enemies. Shivaji Maharaj was very devoted to his mother, Jijabai and always walked on her ideals. It all portrays Shivaji's personal relations with his brother, Sambhaji Raje Bhosle, his father, Shahaji Maharaj and the close-knit relationship he had with his first and beloved wife, Saibai. He was a great king and he is celebrated even today.
