Peshwa Bajirao Story
The story of Peshwa Bajirao will focus on the journey of Peshwa, unlike the film which was focused on the love triangle of Peshwa Bajirao.
The story starts with the birth of Peshwa Bajirao and it was told by the priest that he will not live longer.
He was Bajirao I.
Bajirao I was a general of the Maratha Empire in India. He served as Peshwa (Prime Minister) to the fourth Maratha Chhatrapati (king) Shahu from 1720 until Bajirao’s death. He is also known by the names Bajirao Ballal and Thorale (Marathi for Elder) Bajirao.
Bajirao is credited with expanding the Maratha Empire, especially in the north.
In his brief military career spanning 20 years, Bajirao never lost a battle. According to the British Army officer Bernard Montgomery, Bajirao was “possibly the finest cavalry general ever produced by India”.
Bajirao was born into the Bhat family of Kokanastha Chitpavan Brahmin lineage. His father Balaji Vishwanath was the first Peshwa of Chhatrapati Shahu; his mother was Radhabai. Bajirao had a younger brother Chimaji Appa.
Shahu appointed the 20-year old Bajirao as the Peshwa.
Peshwa Bajirao’s first wife was Kashibai, His second wife was Chhatrasal’s daughter Mastani. He was deeply in love with Mastani, and built a palace for her in Pune, which was called the Mastani Mahal. The orthodox Hindu Brahmin society refused to accept the marriage because Mastani had a Muslim mother. This led to a crisis in the Bhat family. Bajirao’s brother Chimnaji Appa and mother, Radhabai, never accepted Mastani as one of their own. Many attempts were made to take her life.
Bajirao and Mastani had a son, who was named Krishna Rao at birth. Bajirao wanted him to be accepted as a Brahmin, but because of his mother’s Muslim faith, the priests refused to conduct the Hindu upanayana ceremony for him. The boy was brought up as a Muslim, and came to be known as Shamsher Bahadur. Kashibai took the six-year-old boy, also named as Krishnarao, under her care and raised him as one of her own.
For Mastani’s safety and to grant her a royal abode, Bajirao builds Mastani Mahal for her.
After Bajirao leaves for battle with Nasir, the son of Nizam, Radhabai and Nana Saheb imprison Mastani and Shamsher Bahadur. When Bajirao received news of this treachery was schoked and collapsed from his injuries. Kashi pleads with Radhabai to release Mastani so that Bajirao can recover, but her attempt went in vain. Bajirao due to his sickness, dies from the trauma of his hallucinations, just as Mastani passes away in captivity.
