Tanhaji will become the highest grosser for Ajay. It will soon overtake his current highest grossing film Golmaal Again which released in 2017 and collected Rs 205 cr in India in its entire lifetime. Tanaji will also become his 5th consecutive film to enter the Rs 100-cr club. It was released alongside Chhapaak starring Deepika Padukone which has earned Rs 32.48 cr in 12 days.
The lead actor also hosted a special film screening for Army Chief, Navy Chief, and Air Force Chief of the nation. The three of them praised the movie for which Ajay thanked them via a tweet.
The film is about the story of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s Subedar Tanaji Malusare. In an historical event, he sacrified his life while reclaiming the Sinhagad Fort from Mughal emperor Aurangzeb’s forces. He fought for Bhagwa (saffron) flag, Swaraj (home-rule), and Satya (truth).
Besides Ajay, the Om Raut directorial also stars Saif Ali Khan, Kajol, and Sharad Kelkar in pivotal roles. Kajol portrayed the character of Tanhaji’s wife Savitribai while Saif played the anatagonist Udaybhan. While speaking, Saif landed himself in a major controversy when he was asked to comment on the political subtext of the film.
