Now, spilling the beans on what motivated him to make a trilogy, the Ek Villain actor has been quoted saying, “I’ve been wanting to make this film for a long time. I’m extremely excited to collaborate with Nagraj, who is one of the finest directors that we have in the country. As far as the success of ‘Tanhaji‘ or the success of any film is concerned, I feel it definitely adds to other films because it gives a boost to historical films or films in general for people to go to the theatre and come and experience it on the big screen. We are working hard. Hopefully, it’ll be on floors (soon),” by Mid-Day.
