Saif Ali Khan will battle it out with his ‘Omkara’ co-star Ajay Devgn in his first outing this year, ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’.

In the film, Ali Khan plays the antagonist, who fights against Shivaji and his army during the Battle of Sinhagad. The film also presents him and Devgn on the silver screen together after a gap of 13 years. Ali Khan is happy to reunite with the actor-filmmaker, “Ajay was as relaxed and casual as ever, and I didn’t realise that this film is such an epic and work of art. His understanding of CG and VFX is so deep that he doesn’t stress much. What has changed is now he has more responsibility on his shoulders. When we were younger, we used to talk a lot of rubbish but we always liked each other. We both see as it is and call as it is, and we don’t really get carried away with too much of the frilly stuff as we know there is a lot of bullshit that goes on in our profession. He doesn’t get affected by all that. He knows how to treat other actors. He is very passionate about cinema, and he has always been.”

The actor also said he missed having scenes with Kajol, who plays a pivotal part in the film. “Sadly, I have no scenes with Kajol. That is someone I have shared nice screen chemistry with,” he adds.
