Om Raut's directorial, Tanhaji- The Unsung Warrior, is one of the most anticipated films. 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 sure surprised everyone on the first day of 2019, as they unveiled Devgn's first look as Tanaaji and boy, have people been hooked. Needless to say, the fact that the actor will reunite with Saif Ali Khan after a hiatus of 12 years had everyone rooting.
But guess, we will have to wait a while before it hits the screens as the makers have pushed the release of the film to 2020. Even Ajay took to Twitter to announce and wrote, "Start the 2020 new year with me, as Tanhaji releases on Jan 10."
It was earlier scheduled for a 2019 release. The wait is particularly long as, none other than Kajol is playing screen-wife to her hubby in the film. In fact, the actress has reportedly, shot a lavish and large-scale song with diyas and rangolis for the period drama. A source had told Mumbai Mirror, "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."
