“Didn’t know Thomas Edison invented bulbs in Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s era”: Akshay Kumar trolled for his new Marathi film

Akshay Kumar is about to make debut in Marathi films amid continuous flop films in Bollywood. He will play the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in director Mahesh Manjrekar’s multistarrer film Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat. But as soon as Akshay released the teaser of his look in the film in the morning, he started getting trolled on social media.

Most of the people did not like him as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and many expressed apprehension that he may fail here like the role of Prithviraj Chauhan, the Hindu ruler of Ajmer in Samrat Prithviraj which released this year. Akshay had told by putting a teaser of his look that he has started shooting for a Marathi film.

The talk in the teaser is not just about Akshay’s look. A social media user has pointed out a major mistake in the teaser. In the role of Chhatrapati, two torches are seen burning on the throne, behind Akshay coming ahead of the throne. But when Akshay comes close to the camera and the camera moves from below to show his height, then a chandelier is seen hanging on the ceiling.

The strange thing is that there are bulbs in this chandelier. While there were no bulbs in those times and torches, candles and lamps were used in houses and palaces. The user who pointed out this mistake has written, “Shivaji Maharaj ruled from 1674 to 1680. Thomas Edison invented light bulb in 1880. This is Akshay Kumar playing Shivaji.” In the teaser, several dozen burning bulbs in the chandelier are clearly visible in the holders.

The era of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was from 1630 to 1680. While the invention of the bulb happened almost two hundred years after him, around 1880. In such a situation, will the makers rectify the mistake caught in the teaser in the film, it has to be seen.

Meanwhile, many social media users have written while addressing Akshay that better is expected from him and he will play this role seriously. He won’t destroy it like Samrat Prithviraj. Although many have made different negative comments expressing their disappointment after seeing Akshay’s teaser. Many people have rejected Akshay outright in the teaser.

One user wrote in the comment section – You have not been able to even come close to 1 percent of that great Maharaj’s look. One user, “Akshay Kumar has single handedly decided to ruin all Hindu kings.” One user wrote, don’t finish this film in 40 days. Do some research and effort on the character.

Many of the previous films of Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar have been back to back flops. After getting beaten by films like ‘Bachchan Pandey’ and ‘Samrat Prithviraj’, now it seems that the atmosphere regarding Akshay Kumar’s next film is not becoming very positive.

Let us tell you that even after the release of the trailer of Ram Setu in the past, he was trolled badly. Now his look of Shivaji from the upcoming film is also being trolled.

Earlier in Prithviraj, Akshay Kumar was trolled because he refused to grow a moustache, which spoiled the whole look. Also, he did not look fit in that character. Similarly, now even in the character of Shivaji, he is not looking solid, so many people have trolled him. People are asking Akshay to give time and effort to films.
