According to reports, National Award-winning actors Saif Ali Khan and Ajay Devgn are set to join forces once again after starring together on such hit films as Kachche Dhaage (1999) and Omkara (2006). Reportedly, Devgn has offered Khan a meaty role in his much-awaited period drama, Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior. The former is playing the title role in the biopic based on the life of one of the greatest warriors of India, Tanaji Malusare, who fought alongside Maratha leader Shivaji. If a source is to be believed, it was Ajay Devgn who convinced Khan to join the cast of Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior because, after Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003), the latter had decided to never star in a film where he plays the second lead. “It took Saif a long time to agree to be a supporting actor. After Kal Ho Naa Ho, he had vowed to never do a two-hero film in which he would have a weaker role. But Ajay has personally assured him that he will have a strong author-backed role,” the source divulges. To be produced by Ajay Devgn and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior will be directed by Om Raut.
