Ajay Devgn and Saif Ali Khan’s period drama Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior has hit screens. The film also features Kajol, Jagapathi Babu, Sharad Kelkar, Luke Kenny and Neha Sharma among others in significant parts.

The Om Raut directorial revolves around the military leader of the Maratha empire, Tanhaji Malusare who led the battle against the Mughal commander Uday Bhan. While Saif plays Uday, Kajol will be seen essaying the character of Savitribai Malusare (wife of Tanhaji). Sharad portrays Chhatrapati Shivaji in the film. Tanhaji is the first installment of a franchise on unsung heroes bankrolled by Ajay.

In an interview with PTI, Ajay said, “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. 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.”

Tanhaji, which also features Saif Ali Khan, also marks the reunion of the actor with Ajay. The two have earlier shared screen space in movies like Omkara and Kachche Dhaage.

Speaking about his role in the film, Saif told PTI, “I don’t care about image. If I get good work, then it’s a great thing. There should be an image of an actor these days that he is able to pull off different characters and roles. I feel very happy that I got to play a different character. It was one of the most exciting roles of my career.”
