The first look of Vedat Marathe Veer Daudale Saat was unveiled on Tuesday. The movie's directed by Mahesh Manjrekar. It will feature Akshay Kumar as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Since then, the movie has been trending on social media. There have been many rumours surrounding Akshay Kumar's role in it. Exclusive information obtained indicates that Akshay Kumar will be appearing in a cameo role. The actor will shoot for only seven to eight days.
 
“It’s a story from the chapter of the bright Maratha history and chronicles around the lives and journey of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s 7 warriors. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Akshay Kumar to play such a legendary character. He underwent a 20 to 25-day prep for his character with body language and diction experts. He will be seen speaking in Marathi, and his command over the language to mouth the heavy-duty dialogues in a certain dialect will take the audience by surprise,” reveals a source familiar with the project. The source also clarified that, in contrast to rumours, the Khiladi will only be making a cameo appearance in the movie. The source continued, “The look will be polished and enhanced further with the use of VFX”.
 
A portion of social media has been making fun of the movie for using bulbs on the set when electricity hadn't even been invented. According to a set insider, “We are shooting the film in today’s time and every set needs a certain form of lighting to set the ambiance on the set. Those lights are used merely for shot-taking. And of course, it won’t be a part of the film. There will be extensive VFX work that will go into creating authentic work from the era gone by, which includes the replacement of the shots of light with the bulb. The video released was just a small BTS video to announce that the shooting has started.”
 
The story has a special meaning for every Indian. That is why Mahesh Manjrekar and his colleagues are committed to it. The source stated that “The script, the sets, and every other aspect has been recreated by consulting the historians”. The movie is scheduled to be released around the Diwali weekend of 2023.
