Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is based on the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670. Tanaji was the brave military leader in the Maratha empire under the leadership of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. As the legend has it, he represented the Marathas against Udaybhan Singh Rathod, the fort keeper appointed by Mughal General Jai Singh I to protect the fort of Kondhana. After a grave battle, even though the Marathas won, Tanaji lost his life and Shivaji anointed him with the title of ‘Sinha’, meaning lion in Hindi, and the fort was renamed as Sinhagad.
The film is releasing worldwide on January 10, 2020. The film will clash at the box office with Deepika Padukone’s Chhapaak and Rajinikanth’s Darbar on the same day.
Produced by Ajay Devgn’s ADF and Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, the film is directed by Om Raut.
