Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior trailer released yesterday, getting some spectacular artists from the tinsel town such as Ajay Devgn, Kajol, and Saif Ali Khan to share screen space. And while we say so here comes the controversy hurricane for Ajay Devgn starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. Based on the great warrior Tanaji Malusure, the film has faced objection from Sambhaji brigade, the organization has picked three major points in the trailer, asking the makers to provide clarification on the same.
The organization has questioned the makers on certain dialogues of Kajol as she plays the character of Savitri Malusare. They also pinpointed a man throwing a wooden stick at Shivaji Maharaj. Lastly, the creative liberty was taken by the makers, slowly and steadily erasing Shivaji Maharaj’s image of being a secular and inclusive leader by showcasing the symbol of OM on the flag. As per reports in Mumbai Mirror, the organization was quoted saying, “Movies should be made on historical topics, but we will not tolerate the distortion of historical incidents/facts.” ALSO READ: Tanhaji-The Unsung Warrior Trailer: Salman Khan Hails Ajay Devgn’s Performance, Says ‘Tanhaji Manaji’
In the past, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmaavat too had come under the radar, as the filmmaker had taken creative liberty to make it appealing for the audience. This had compelled the makers to alter several scenes in the movie, before it hit the screens.
While Ajay Devgn plays the pivotal role of Tanhaji Malusare, Saif has stepped into the shoes of Udyabhan Rathod. Meanwhile, Kajol’s absence from the trailer launch event, raised a lot of eyebrows. To which Ajay replied, “Kajol had to be in Singapore as either one of the parents had to attend Nysa’s parent-teacher meet.”
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior helmed by Om Raut will release on January 10, 2020.
