Ajay Devgn's upcoming 'Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior' has already managed to stir conversation among moviegoers about its elaborate sets, befitting costumes, and Saif's Jon Snow inspired look. Almost a month ahead of its release, the makers have released the first song of the movie.
Titled 'Shankara Re Shankara', the song is an ode to Lord Shiva. Penned by Anil Verma and sung by Mehul Vyas, the song brings the protagonist and the antagonist of the film together. While Ajay Devgn can be seen dancing, Saif Ali Khan is enjoying the spectacle from this throne, every now and then imitating a step or two while remaining seated. Choreographed by Ganesh Acharya, the song has multiple memorable hook steps that will stay with you after the song. Our favourite is the 'mustache' step that Saif Ali Khan as Udaybhan Rathod mirrors.
Saif Ali Khan steals your attention with his crazed look. Despite having little screentime in the song, he manages to capture your interestest as Rathod who seems to be really enjoying the performance. If you haven't heard the song yet, take a look:
Tanhaji marks Ajay and Saif's fourth collaboration. Earlier, the two were seen together in LOC Kargil (2003), Milan Luthria's Kachche Dhaage (1999), and Vishal Bharadwaj's Omkara (2006).
The climax of the movie will reportedly feature an intense fighting sequence between Ajay Devgn and Saif Ali Khan where they will be seen locking swords.
Fans are excited to see Ajay Devgn and Kajol together after a long time. The film also stars Sharad Kelkar, Jagapathi Babu, Devdutta Nage, Pankaj Tripathi, Neha Sharma, Ajinkya Deo, Kailash Waghmare, Hardik Sangani, Luke Kenny, and Vipul Gupta in key roles.
Tanhaji is famous for his role in the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670 AD. The military general met his end while winning the Kondhana fort from the Mughals for the Marathas during the battle.
The movie will hit the theatres on 10th January.
