Saif Ali Khan on reuniting with Ajay Devgn on Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior “He’s one of the most confident & generous actors today”
Saif Ali Khan will battle it out with his Omkara co-star Ajay Devgn in his first outing this year, Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior.
In Tanhaji, Saif plays the antagonist, who fights against Shivaji and his army during the Battle of Sinhagad. The film also presents Ajay and Saif on the silver screen together after a gap of 13 years (they were last seen in Omkara). Saif is happy to reunite with the actor-filmmaker. “Ajay was as relaxed and casual as ever, and I didn’t realise that this film is such an epic and work of art. His understanding of CG and VFX is so deep that he doesn’t stress much. What has changed is now he has more responsibility on his shoulders. When we were younger, we used to talk a lot of rubbish but we always liked each other. We both see as it is and call as it is, and we don’t really get carried away with too much of the frilly stuff as we know there is a lot of bullshit that goes on in our profession. He doesn’t get affected by all that. He knows how to treat other actors. He is very passionate about cinema, and he has always been.”
Further, Saif says he missed having scenes with Kajol, who plays a pivotal part in Tanhaji, and has also been his co-star of films like Yeh Dillagi and Hameshaa.“Sadly, I have no scenes with Kajol. That is someone I have shared nice screen chemistry with,” he adds.
Distributed by Cinestaan Film Company, Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior releases in cinemas on 10th January 2020.
