After acting together in films like Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha, Raju Chacha, and U Me Aur Hum, husband and wife Ajay Devgn and Kajol are reuniting once again on the big screen. The duo will be seen in Ajay’s production venture Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior.
While there were speculations about what’s Kajol role in the movie, it has now been confirmed that the Helicopter Eela actress will be seen as his better half in the movie. “Kajol plays Taanaji’s wife in the film,” said a source.
The actress recently shot for a song for the film where she was dressed in traditional 17th century Maharashtrian outfit. As per reports, the set was beautifully decorated with diyas and rangolis.
Directed by Om Raut, the film also stars Saif Ali Khan as Udaybhan Rathod. As the villain of the film, Saif will be seen having a combat with Ajay.
During an earlier interaction with Dainik Bhaskar, Saif had mentioned, “I rehearsed some action scenes which I was supposed to do the next day. It’s something I have never done before and I am really excited. Kareena (Kapoor Khan) saw me in the look of the soldier. She thought I was looking strikingly different from what I did previously onscreen. I will be seen sporting period costumes designed by a well-known fashion designer. I shoot wearing Persian inspired, Mughal inspired outfits. I shoot at these beautifully designed sets.”
History has it that it was during a war with Udaybhan that Taanaji lost his life. Though he died, he helped Shivaji Maharaj in successfully conquering the fort called Sinhagad.
