Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior poster depicts Ajay Devgn as the indomitable Maratha warrior
Period dramas have always been a crowd puller. After Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Bajirao Mastani, there is yet another Maratha warrior's account that will be brought to the silver screen. Taanaji- The Unsung Warrior features Ajay Devgn as Subedar Taanaji Malusare who battled alongside Chatrapathi Shivaji Maharaj. Saif Ali Khan will play the antagonist in the film. Director Om Raut recently shared a new look of the film on social media.
The look reveals Devgn as the indomitable warrior, dressed in a subedar outfit. Devgn is seen carrying a sword while his face is half-covered and eyes pregnant with anger.
