In India

The makers of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior have released the second trailer of the film. Ajay Devgn, Kajol and Saif Ali Khan are seen performing edge-of-the-seat action in the second trailer of this period drama.

The costumes, dialogues and action in the trailer take you back to an epoch you had only read about in books of history.

The first trailer of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior had received a good response from the audience. Apart from the second trailer today, two songs of the film have been released, which are getting rave reviews from the audience.

The second trailer features Ajay Devgn in the role of Tanhaji (or Tanaji) Malusare and Saif Ali Khan essaying the part of ‘villain’ Udaybhan. Kajol stands steadfast with her husband in the role of Tanhaji’s wife Savitri.

The second trailer of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior

The film is about the bravery of Tanhaji, the dharma of Savitri and cruelty of Udaybhan. This 17th-century plot is based on the life of Tanhaji Malusare, a Maratha chieftain close to Chhatrapati Shivaji. He is most famously known for his role in the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670.

Tanhaji… is Ajay Devgn’s 100th film.

The film will see Sharad Kelkar in the role of Shivaji Maharaj and Padmavati Rao in the role of Jijamata. Tanhaji… will be released on 10 January.

The movie will hit test the box office simultaneously with Deepika Padukone-starrer Chhapaak, the story of an acid-attack survivor.

History of Tanaji

In 1670, Tanaji, who hailed from “Umrat” near Mahad, Konkan, was busy making preparations for his son, Rayaba’s wedding when he was summoned by Shivaji for a meeting. Tanaji put the wedding plans on hold and immediately left for the meeting.

On hearing Shivaji’s plan to recapture Kondhana fort near Pune from the Mughals, Tanaji took charge of the campaign and started his preparations.

Upon reaching the foot of the fort, Tanaji and his detachment of 3000 troops were said to have scaled the fort from the western side on a dark night with the help of a domesticated Bengal monitor lizard named Yashwanti to which they were said to have tied ropes and sent crawling up top to the precipice of the fort.

Sirf News is stopping short of telling the readers the whole story to avoid spoilers, presuming that Bollywood sticks to history rather than change the plot to suit its politics as they did in Panipat, Jodhaa Akbar, etc.
