Ajay Devgn will be seen portraying the role of legendary Maratha warrior Subedar Tanhaji Malusar, who fought alongside Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. He helped to recapture Kondhana fort near Pune from the Mughals and as a tribute to Tanhaji’s bravery, the fort was renamed by Shivaji as Sinhagad (Lion’s Fort). Tanhaji was so well-known for his valour and bravery that the famous saint and poet Tulsidas had sung a powada (a Marathi ballad centering on wars) describing the bravery with which Tanhaji had recaptured Sinhagad.
