Despite the release of two biggies in the form of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan and Bhoot, Ajay Devgn's Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior continued its splendid run as it raked in around Rs 60 lakhs on its seventh Friday, which is a great number. The film currently stands with the grand total of around Rs 277 crore and will soon surpass the business of Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh to become the tenth highest-grossing film of all-time.
The historical drama also stars Saif Ali Khan, Kajol, Sharad Kelkar, Luke Kenny, Neha Sharma and Devdutta Nage in key roles. The period drama is based on the life of Maratha warrior Tanaji Malusare, who was a trusted military leader of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Tanhaji is Ajay Devgn's 100th film. "I have been lucky to be doing different kinds of roles and they have worked too because so many actors struggle to do different things. At that time nobody was doing a film like Raincoat'. I just wanted to try out different things, hence I did it. There was no fear of whether it will work or not. I am glad my risk paid off. A lot of people advised me against such films but today almost everyone is doing such films and they are working," Ajay said.
The actor also revealed how he is most attached to historical dramas. "Something like 'Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior' or 'Legend of Bhagat Singh' makes you think that how is it possible that such sacrifices are made by people? We can't even think of. They must be different people, what they think and how they function. The country came first for them," he said. Anyway, have you liked the film? Tweet to us @bollywood_life.
