Digpal Lanjekar has directed the film which is an instalment in the Shivaji Maharaj series. It eschews actors like Ankit Mohan and Harish Dudhade who were part of the earlier films in the franchise. Aastad Kale appears in a crucial role. Digpal is best known for his 2018 film, Farzand, which had Ankit Mohan in the lead. He has made a string of hugely successful historical costume dramas and Sher Shivraj is very much in a similar vein.
