After working on Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, Ajay Devgn is now planning a franchise of films which will focus on stories of several other unsung heroes and warriors of India. The superstar wants to bring the life of these unsung warriors who have left an imprint on Indian history.

According to reports, Ajay Devgn’s team has already shortlisted a couple of stories that the superstar is keen to bankroll in future. “If Avengers can attract the youth, our heroes and unsung warriors can also find a connection with them. You have to tell a story on a grand scale with emphasis on character values,” a source close to the development explains.

Speaking about the same, Ajay Devgn says, “When researching Tanhaji, I was fascinated by warriors like him who have made significant contributions to our freedom movement. These are stories of valour and I want to bring some of them to the screen.”

The superstar credits Om Raut, the director of Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior, for this, “Om simultaneously came up with the idea of showcasing the lives of other unsung warriors. The seed was actually planted by him but the thought remained. We should take it forward.”

Also starring Kajol and Saif Ali Khan in lead roles, Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior is set to buzz into theatres on 10th January 2020. The film will clash with Deepika Padukone’s much-awaited Chhapaak which also releases on the same date.
