Ajay Devgn made headlines like perhaps never before when he announced that he will be acting and producing a period war drama film that is based on the life of Taananji Malusare and his heroic fight during the battle of Singhdad. Judging from the first look poster of the film, which is titled Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior, we are getting the feeling that the epic drama will entertain its audience in every possible way!
And, now we hear that although the film is primarily a war drama, it will also focus on the relationship that Tanaji shared with his wife, the role of which, if a source that has been quoted online is to be believed, will be essayed by Devgn’s real-life wife Kajol.
While speaking about the same, the source in question reportedly stated that, “It’s likely that Kajol will play the female lead opposite Ajay in the movie. If she gives her nod, she will essay the role of Taanaji’s wife. Although essentially it’s a war film, it also focuses on the relationship between the Maratha warrior and his wife.”
To which, the person added that, “Kajol’s Marathi dialect is perfect and the role suits her. When she heard the part, she was excited about it. The mapping, layout, paperwork, designing and planning are happening right now. The makers have locked some locations outside Mumbai and have even started building the sets,”
Touted to be the most expensive film that has been produced by Devgn till date, the film will reportedly be mounted on a budget of a whopping 150 crores and is said to go on floors during September this year.
Will Kajol step into the shoes of Tanaji’s wife? Fingers crossed.
