TV show Peshwa Bajirao is based on the life of first Peshwa of Chhatrapati Shahu, who was the courageous son of Radhabai and Balaji Vishwanath.
Until now, child actor Rudra Soni has been essaying the role of Bajirao. However as the show will be taking a nine year leap, actor Karan Suchak will portray the role of grown-up Bajirao.

Reportedly, many popular name such as actors Mrunal Jain, Niketaan Dheer, Pearl V Puri, Harshad Arora and others were also being considered.
Karan says, “It gives me immense pride and excitement to play Bajirao. The role is full of responsibilities and as an actor I’m aware of it and would love to work and fulfil viewers’ expectations.”
