Over the years, Zee TV has introduced audiences to some truly inspiring accounts of India’s most striking leaders and royal figures who have had a significant impact on India’s historical and cultural heritage. After an overwhelming response to the journeys of Jodha Akbar and Jhansi ki Rani, Zee TV is all set to introduce viewers to the biggest historical magnum opus of 2021, presenting the untold story of one of the most iconic women of the Maratha empire – Kashibai, the wife of Peshwa Bajirao Ballal. Produced by SOBO Films, the show premiered on 15th November 2021 it airs every Monday to Friday at 8 PM, only on Zee TV.
While child actors Aarohi Patel is seen as Kashibai and Venkatesh Pande as Bajirao, popular television and Marathi actress – Aishwarya Narkar has also been roped to portray the role of Radhabai.

She is seen playing the pivotal role of Bajirao’s mother – Radhabai, who is a strict disciplinarian, a loving mother, and a caring wife who wants what’s best for her family. She is also the only one with farsightedness when it comes to her family’s future. This strong persona of Radhabai’s character is something to watch out for!
Talking about her character, Aishwarya Narkar mentions, “It feels amazing to make a comeback on TV after a long break with Zee TV’s Kashibai Bajirao Ballal. I’m excited to be playing such an important role of Radhabai. She is quite an impactful character, and I must mention that her strong and courageous conduct is the highlight of the character. In fact, I have always been fascinated by the rich Maratha legacy and when I got this opportunity to be a part of this show I was delighted since I always wanted to play a character like this. The strong aura and bold nature of Radhabai is something I relate to. We have worked very hard for this beautifully curated show, and I am sure viewers will love it. I can’t wait for them to watch it.”
