Meanwhile, Saif Ali Khan who plays Udaybhan Rathore in the film, is being massively trolled for his comment on Indian history.
“I don’t think this is history,” Saif said, talking about his latest release, the historical drama “Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior“, adding: “I don’t think there was a concept of India till the British gave it one.”
Saif’s comment came in an interview when he was asked to comment on the political subtext of the film, reports news18.com.
“For some reason I didn’t take a stand. Maybe next time I would. I was very excited to play the role because it’s a delicious role. But when people say this is history, I don’t think this is history. I am quite aware of what the history was. I don’t think there was a concept of India till perhaps the British gave it one. I don’t think there is really any constructive point in arguing about loudly, provided you yourself know why you’re doing it,” Saif said.
