Ajay Devgn is all set to join hands with T-Series’ head honcho Bhushan Kumar for a period drama film. Ajay will be seen playing a knight in Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior.

Renowned film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to officially announce the project. He tweeted, “IT’S OFFICIAL… Ajay Devgn and Bhushan Kumar join hands for #Taanaji… Filming starts 25 Sept 2018, after Ajay finishes shoot of Akiv Ali’s next film [not titled yet] and #TotalDhamaal… Directed by Om Raut.”

The film is all set to roll on 25th September this year.

The poster of Taanaji was revealed some time back and looked intriguing. The historical figure was a Maratha military knight in Shivaji Maharaj’s army, founder of the Maratha Empire in 17th century India.

Taanaji who was hailing from Malusare clan, is known for the Onset of Sinhagad in 1670. The legend has it that Shivaji Maharaj called for Taanaji to recapture the fortress of Kondana near Pune. The Maratha knight was at the marriage of his son when he got Shivaji’s order.

Therefore, soon Tanaji with his army scaled the fort. And that too with the help of domesticated monitor lizards which is called Gorpad in Marathi. Tanaji and his men then climbed the fort and recaptured the fort from Udaybhan Rathod, fort keeper of Jai Singh I.

Ajay Devgn has a jam-packed schedule for this year and next year as he has a series of films in the pipeline, this one being one of the most anticipated one.

The film will surely take us back in time and we are expecting it to be a classic one.

On the work front, Ajay was last seen in Raid which performed extremely well at the box-office. The movie also starred Ileana D’Cruz in the lead role. Devgn will be next seen in Total Dhamaal and Akiv Ali’s next film which is yet to be titled which is directed by Om Raut.
