In tonight’s episode of Swarajyarakshak Sambhaji, we see winds of battle blowing across the mountain ranges of Swarajya. The reason for this, as shown in the previous episodes, is the planned betrayal by Kanhoji. We see Sambhaji standing in his court as he gives instructions to his ministers, about upping the vigilance inside and around the fort. He instructs them to keep track of every man as well as horse, as one can’t be certain about when the latter can change its trot. Just as Sambhaji is discussing things about the daily operations with Panta, Kaviraj walks in and informs Raje about an invitation letter, that requests his (Sambhaji) presence at Saptakoteshwar temple in Goa.
Watch the full episode of the show here:
Upon receiving the letter, Sambhaji gets ready to visit the temple, which is set up in honour of one of the most revered gods of Konkan. While the discussion is still on, Bhairjee Kaka walks in to inform Raje that the Portuguese have gone back on their word and are have begun to pillage Maratha regions. Sambhaji expresses his anger and decides to put the matter to rest, once and for all.
On the other hand, Kanoji has returned to the palace and is seen trying to convince Ganhoji to rebel against Sabhaji Raje. He (Kanoji) is faced with Ganhoji’s immediate anger and distaste, at what he has done in the past. Ganhoji tells him not to fetch for goodwill from the jackal (Aurangzeb), to which Kanoji tells him that it is time they get certain Watan (land), which is why he approached Aurangzeb, earlier.
He is finally shown his place by Ganhoji, who tells him that such things cannot and should not transpire in Raje’s kingdom and that he has gravely erred. While the above is happening in the background, both Akbar and Aurangzeb are dealing with their own troubles. Where Akbar feels deeply betrayed by Sambhaji, Aurangzeb is extremely disappointed as defeating the Marathas is taking too much of his time.
How will each of them try and tackle the issues before them? What would be the next step in Sambhaji’s strategy? To know about all of this and more, stay tuned and watch full episodes of Swarajyarakshak Sambhaji, exclusively on ZEE5.
