Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan and Kajol starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’s trailer got released today. At the trailer launch event, both Ajay and Saif revealed their preparation stories behind portraying the legendary characters of Tanhaji Malusare and UdayBhan Rathodh in this epic biographical historical drama.
Ajay when asked about the responsibility of performing a historical character in his 100th film said, “Apart from this being my 100th film, this is still very special because when you do a film like Tanhaji and play a character like him, who has been a legendary warrior hero, the responsibility increases. Thus it becomes important to not portray the character in a wrong way” Further talking about performing the daredevil stunts in the film, he said, “There is a lot of pain that one suffers while doing stunt and action, I am still in pain( he laughingly added) but still you have to do it, so we work hard and do the same.”
When Saif was asked the same question and how he researched for his role of UdayBhan in the film, he revealed, “I did a lot of research and bought Amar Chitra Katha(collection of epic histories) which has the full story but when I had listen to this story as a kid, it was almost the same but our producers and directors have done some good modernization to it. So when I read the story, I figured that Udhaybhan has a lovely role in it and an interesting part, who was a respected rajput villain and I was very excited to do it.” Saif further added, “Tanhaji’s story is incomplete without Udhaybhan and the way this film is created and mounted, it makes me happy today. I was not very sure initially about 3D, about how it’s going to look; but I am so pleased today that it’s going to be a visual treat and I am just happy being a part of it and I very nice part of it.”
Directed by Om Raut, this epic historical tale is co produced by Ajay Devgn Films and T-series, which will release on January 10, 2020.
