Zee Marathi’s show Swarajyarakshak Sambhaji has become an audience favorite in a short span of time. The show starring actor Amol Kolhe and Prajakta Gaikwad as Sambhaji and Yesubai repectively revolves around the story of the fight for Swarajya or freedom started by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and continued by his son Chhatrapati Sambhaji.
In the previous episode of the show we saw that Yesubai refused to give Ganoji Rao the lands that he asked for, this led to Ganoji’s frustration and he left. Yesubai was devastated and talked to Matoshree who assured her that Ganoji wouldn’t do anything that would harm Swarajya.
In the recent episode, Sambhaji is seen talking about the punishment that would be delivered to the traitors of Swarajya. He says that he would not even flinch while punishing a traitor who has changed sides and moved to Aurangzeb’s side, be it anyone and from any caste or family.
Yesubai hears this and is terrified as she has been threatened by Ganoji Rao that he would join Aurangzeb’s army.
Sambhaji enquires about Ganoji’s absence and realises that Yesubai is hiding something from him. She ends up telling him everything about Ganoji’s threat. Meanwhile, Aurangzeb is happy with people joining his army and is confident about his win over Sambhaji and his troops soon.
On one hand Ganoji Rao is seen talking to his wife about his sister Yesubai’s pride and her refusal of the land that he deserves. His wife asks him to apologise but he says that this is just the beginning of a feud amidst them. Whereas on the other Yesubai is seen pleading Sambhaji to change the land owning rule as Aurangzeb is using it against them. Sambhaji clearly refuses as this is a rule started by Abasaheb due to the Zamindari system.
The courtiers are seen discussing the falling out of the soldiers from Sambhaji’s army due to the refusal of lands. Sambhaji explains Yesubai why he can never go against his father’s wishes.
