Ever since, Ajay Devgn announced his next ambitious venture, ‘Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior,’ the curiosity around this Om Raut directorial has been increasing with each new development.
The latest reports in the industry are that Saif Ali Khan tops the makers’ list for the role of the antagonist and are in talks with him, reports DNA India.
According to sources, the team believes that Khan will make for an interesting choice to play Udaybhan Rathod, the Rajput officer and fort keeper appointed by Jai Singh, chief of the Moghul army under Aurangzeb. The film recounts the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670, which was fought between Tanaji Malusare, a commander in Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s army, and Udaybhan. The former sacrificed his life to recapture Sinhagad Fort from the Moghuls.
If Khan signs the movie, it will be the fourth time he will share credits with Devgn. While ‘LOC Kargil’ (2003) failed to have them sharing the same frame, ‘Kachche Dhaage’ (1999) and ‘Omkara’ (2006), in which they acted together, have been praised
However, when contacted, Khan’s representative said that there has been no movement on this front.
