Taanaji will reunite Ajay Devgn with Saif Ali Khan and wife Kajol, on screen after a long time.
One of the most anticipated movies of 2019, period-drama Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior is yet to surface but the excitements that it has brought with it is worth discussing. The film has been directed by Om Raut and is based on the life of Subedar Taanaji Malusare, a superintendent in the army of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, the film features Ajay Devgn in the lead.
The makers of the film have shocked the audience with the release of the first look of Ajay Devgn in Taanaji but the excitement is still on as there is news of casing Kajol as Taanaji’s wife and Saif Ali Khan will also be a pivotal part of the film.
As reported by Mumbai Mirror, Kajol will appear as an on-screen wife of Taanaji and preparations have been started for the grand and lavish shoot of a large scale song with diyas and rangolis for the period drama. The publication quoted a source saying, “The song was shot over a week in the last week of December and is a part of the climax. It sees Kajol dressed in a traditional Maharashtrian outfit from the 17th century, inside her onscreen home. It has her thinking about her relationship with her warrior husband and a certain situation the couple is faced with at the time. Although Ajay won’t feature in the number, there are glimpses of their past moments together. The dance number accentuates her character’s emotional state and focuses on her facial expressions.”
Mumbai Mirror also stated that Kajol will have an upper hand in understanding the basics of Maharashtrian and other traditional elements of Maharashtra as she is half-Marathi (from her actress-mother Tanuja’s side), without any hiccups and hassles. So, now you know!
Taanaji- The Unsung Warrior is based on the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670, which was fought between Tanaji Malusare, a commander in Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s army, and Udaybhan. Saif will be essaying the role of Rajput warrior Udaybhan Rathod. Saif has expressed his say on the reunion with Ajay after a decade, “I respect Ajay and like the way he looks at life. I’m happy to be a part of this huge historical which will be a screen extravaganza, a Baahubali kind of experience in 3D. Kids will love it, so will the rest of the country.”
