Check out Twitter’s reaction on Tanhaji’s trailer here:

The film is a glorious depiction of the Battle of Sinhagad that was fought between Maratha army of Shivaji Maharaj led by commander Tanaji Malusare and Udaybhan Rathod who was the fortkeeper under Mughal Army Chief Jai Singh I. Directed by Om Raut, the film depicts one of the most celebrated incidents from the Maratha history that happened on February 4, 1670. The trailer of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior shows Ajay in a larger-than-life avatar dedicating himself to the Maratha empire and their one collective aim: Purna Swaraj (complete independence). Ajay’s Marathi accent and the valour with which he adorns the warrior look seem impressive. Joining him in the cast is Kajol, who plays the role of Tanaji’s wife Savitri Bai. Saif Ali Khan plays the main antagonist and has been shown as an exemplary brave warrior from the Mughal army.

Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is Ajay’s one of the most ambitious projects to date. The film is produced by Ajay Devgn and co-produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar. It is set for release on January 10 next year.
