Recently while peaking about the film's success with Mid-day, Ajay Devgn pointed out that even though the month of January is often considered a "jinx for movies", things had gone fairly well for Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.
He even opened up about building a franchise out of Tanhaji and told the tabloid, "The unsung warrior franchise has now found feet. These are real stories that need to reach far and wide. My production house is committed to this franchise, though as an actor, I may not be in every film. Regardless of my presence in the films, we won't compromise on the scale and technology. We will have bigger budgets."
Meanwhile, the Om Raut directorial has been declared tax-free in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Maharashtra.
After the Maharashtra government declared the film tax-free in Maharashtra, Ajay Devgn took to his Twitter page and tweeted, "Thank you Uddhav Thackeray Ji for declaring #TanhajiTheUnsungWarrior tax-free in the state of Maharashtra. @OfficeofUT @CMOMaharashtra."
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior has Ajay Devgn essaying the role of Tanaji Malusare, the military leader of Maratha king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj's army, who played an instrumental role in taking back the strategic hill fortress of Kondhana from the Mughal Empire. The film starred Saif Ali Khan as the main antagonist Udaybhan.
