If we talk about the story of Sharad Kelkar’s film ‘Har Har Mahadev’, then this film is based on Baji Prabhu Deshpande, the general of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, in whose role Sharad Kelkar is seen in the film. The film tells an inspiring story of a real battle, led by Bajiprabhu, where only 300 soldiers fought against 12000 enemies and raised the bar of victory. Many people had to sacrifice their lives in this fight.
