Tanhaji The Unsung Warrior: Ajay Devgn introduces Saif Ali Khan as Udhaybhan in new poster
By India Today Web Desk: Two months ahead of the release of Tanhaji: The Unsung Hero, Ajay Devgn has started giving a sneak-peek into the period drama. A day after Akshay Kumar unveiled a new poster from Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji: The Unsung Hero, the Shivaay actor shared another poster of the film featuring Saif Ali Khan.
Sharing the first-look poster of Saif Ali Khan from Tanhaji: The Unsung Hero, Ajay Devgn wrote, “Udaybhan Ke Darbar Mein Ghalati Ki Maafi Nahi Sirf Sazah Milti Hai…#TanhajiTheUnsungWarrior, in cinemas 10th January 2020. #TanhajiTrailerOnNov19 #SaifAliKhan @itsKajolD @omraut @itsBhushanKumar @ADFFilms @TSeries @TanhajiFilm”
In the poster, Saif can be seen sitting on a throne with a sword in his hand.
It is after 13 years that Saif Ali Khan and Ajay Devgn will share screen space. They were last seen together on the big screen in 2006 film Omkara.
Talking about his character, Saif Ali Khan earlier said in an interview, “Udaybhan Singh Rathod, a great warrior who works as a mercenary for the Mughals, is not your regular baddie but a doomed Shakespearean hero who ends up on the other side. Even in Amar Katha comics he comes across as a cool dude, the kind Johnny Depp has brought to the screen.”
Tanhaji is based on the life of Tanaji Malusare who was a military leader in the army of Chhatrapati Shivaji, the founder of the Maratha Empire in 17th century India.
On Tuesday, Akshay Kumar shared a poster of Ajay Devgn in Tanhaji wherein he congratulated the actor for his three-decade-long journey in Bollywood.
