Well, which asking this question, Big B only mentioned Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj as Shivaji. Netizens noticed the disrespect towards the great Maratha warrior and started bashing the show as well as the megastar on Twitter for mentioning him as just Shivaji. Social media users also asked Amitabh to apologies for the same.
