Historical period films 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. Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior features Ajay Devgn as Subedar Taanaji Malusare who battled alongside Chatrapathi Shivaji Maharaj.

The first look reveals Ajay as the fierce warrior, determined to wage a war against the invaders.

Here is Ajay's first look in the titular role

Ajay’s Tanhaji will bring the story of Maratha commander Tanaji Malusare, who was celebrated for his role in the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670 AD. Directed by Om Raut, the film will see Kajol reunite with Ajay on screen almost after a decade, where she will essay the role of Tanaji's wife.

Saif Ali Khan will play the antagonist in the film. The film will mark the actor's fourth project with Ajay, following the J.P. Dutta directorial LOC Kargil (2003), Milan Luthria's Kachche Dhaage (1999) and Vishal Bharadwaj's Omkara (2006).
