Sony TV, after witnessing the enormous success of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Bajirao Mastani, has launched a television serial called Peshwa Bajirao. Initially, there was a tussle between &TV and Sony TV to launch the show. It was also reported that both, &TV and Sony TV, will air the serial based on the life of the Maratha warrior. However later, &TV backed out, and Sony TV began airing the show. If there is any new update on the &TV’s adaptation of this serial, we will update it. For now, we will be focusing on the Sony TV’s adaptation.
Peshwa Bajirao is a historical period drama based on the life of Maratha Peshwa Bajirao, first of his name. It will be produced by Sphere Origins Productions of Sunjoy Waddhwa and creatively produced by Nilanjana Purkayasshta’s company Invictus T Mediaworks.
