The trailer of the much anticipated Marathi film Dharmaveer was launched on Saturday at a mega event in Mumbai.

The makers of the film released the trailer at a star-studded event with several dignitaries and celebrities in attendance!
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan too attended the event. He looked stunning in a black-and-blue three-piece suit. However, what caught everyone’s attention was something else. During the event, Salman began his speech in Marathi and heaped praises on the movie. He also talked about similarities between him and Anand Dighe. “There are two similarities between me and Anand Dighe ji. He used to say in one bedroom and I stay in one bedroom. Secondly, We both are unmarried,” Salman said as reported by ETimes.
The event was also graced by Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, state minister Eknath and several other Bollywood celebrities including Jackie Shroff, Riteish Deshmukh, Nikhil Dwivedi, and Bhagyashree among others.
Speaking at the event, Uddhav Thackeray said “Eknath, I say this from the bottom of my heart, you and your team have done a great job! Making a movie is one thing but to make a movie on this subject and taking up the onus of taking this story ahead and making it reach the audience is admirable!“
