Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is a biopic on the life of Taanaji Malusare, a military leader in Shivaji’s army. The film also marks the reunion of Ajay and his wife-actress Kajol on onscreen after 11 years. They were last seen together in U Me Aur Hum in 2008.
Ajay had earlier said: “We have read about Taanaji Malusare when we were in a school and now, the time is changing, where people are exploring different stories and characters who were popular figures in the history.” Directed by Om Raut, the film is co-produced by Ajay and Bhushan Kumar.
Anees Bazmee’s Pagalpanti, starring an ensemble of actors including Anil Kapoor, John Abraham and Ileana D’Cruz, will now release on November 22 instead of December 6 this year.
