Last seen in T-Series Films and Luv Films’ romantic comedy De De Pyaar De (2019) alongside Tabu and Rakul Preet Singh, superstar Ajay Devgn is presently looking forward to the release of his most ambitious film Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. The period drama is based on the life of Tanaji Malusare, a military leader in the Maratha Empire who fought alongside Maratha King Shivaji in various battles throughout the years.
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is an important film for the two-time National Film Award winning actor as he has produced it under his production house Ajay Devgn Ffilms apart from playing the title role. It reunites the superstar with Saif Ali Khan after more than a decade. During a promotional event, Devgn said that he wants this film to be the beginning of a franchise on unsung Indian warriors.
“With Tanhaji, we are starting a franchise on unsung warriors. This is the first film in that. We would like to make films about people who have been forgotten and have done so much for the country,” said Devgn.

The actor went on to add, “We want to take this franchise forward because every state has a hero. Not state but these are all national heroes and icons. They are known more in their states than in the country. We want to tell their stories all across the country”.
Besides Ajay Devgn and Saif Ali Khan, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior also stars Kajol and Sharad Kelkar in important roles. The big-ticket film is slated to arrive in cinemas on 10th January 2020.
