Maratha “Pirate” in Hollywood

One of the characters in Pirates of the Caribbean – at World's End (2007) is called Sumbhajee Angria based on Sambhaji Angre, son of Sarkhel Kanhoji Angre, the real life commander of the Maratha Navy.

3M Trivia - Kanhoji Angre's Maratha Armar (Naval Fleet) held sway over Andaman and Nicobar Islands and the Dutch ships from Mallacca and Bali had to pay toll to pass through the Andaman Sea.
