Battle Of Swaraj is based on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. It shows what a brave warrior can do with his Gorilla War Tactics and his brave men to win freedom for the people from the cruel emperors. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was the son of Shahji Raje  Bhosale who was Sardar in King Adil Shah’s Darbar. From having a small jagir of Pune to having more than 300 forces under his control, how he spread his empire to Tamilnadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh during his lifetime is what makes the crux of Battle of Swaraj documentary.

Talking about making the documentary, the director said, “The journey of making this documentary film, Battle Of Swaraj, was amazing and challenging. It would not have been possible without my crew or team of the film. Climbing the fort looked challenging as it was, and climbing with cameras and heavy equipment looked impossible, but we achieved it. The most difficult task was to climb the steep Rajgad Fort, but with the blessings of the great Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, we were able to climb the fort within 3 hours.

In the recent past, Sujoy Mukherjee made a grand announcement of his directorial debut, “Kalpvriksh”, at the ancestral Filmalaya Studio in collaboration with Royal Cinemas, which revolves around the sufferings of parents vis a vis their over-ambitious and selfish children.
