Chhatrasal was the father of Mastani, who loved and married the Maratha ruler Bajirao Peshwa. With his help, Chhatrasal was able to fight against the Mughals. After he died, in 1731, he bequeathed some of his kingdom to the Marathas. 
 
The movie ‘Bajirao Mastani’ ends with the death of Maratha warrior Peshwa Bajirao and his lover Mastani, but in real life, their son Shamsher Bahadur went on to rule the Banda province of Bundelkhand.
