The upcoming series 'Maharana' on Hotstar was based on the life of Maharana Pratap, in which Gurmeet Choudhary was playing the lead role. We are saying this because after the release of the teaser, the shooting of this series has been stopped and now it will not be made. Actually, this big decision has been taken due to the sudden demise of the director of the series, Nitin Desai. Last year, Hotstar announced the web series 'Maharana', in which Gurmeet Choudhary was chosen for the role of Maharana Pratap and actress Riddhima Pandit for the role of Maharani Ajabde. Half of its shooting was also done. Director Nitin Desai passed away in July last year. Now this series will not be made. According to the source of 'Dainik Bhaskar', 'This was Nitin Desai's dream project. After about a year of preparation, he started shooting for it last year, so the Disney Plus Hotstar team had no choice but to stop this project midway.
