Shahid to Star in Period Drama as Chhatrapati Shivaji?

Shivaji as a ruler is one of the greatest in India. There exist several adaptations of him which have been made or are being made. Along with this, period drama genre films have also become a trend with Sanjay Leela Bhansali leading this trend. Ashwin Varde, producer of Kabir Singh is now set to join this trend by making a film about Shivaji and is rumoured to have approached Shahi Kapoor for the role. If he agrees, this would not be their first project together, and would probably be a hit too. What are your thoughts on this?
