Recently while speaking with PTI, Ajay Devgn said that The Legend of Bhagat Singh and Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior have touched him the most. The news agency quoted him as saying, "These films make you wonder as to how these people made such big sacrifices. We can't even think of them."
Directed by Om Raut, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior starred Saif Ali Khan as Udaybhan Rathore, the main antagonist.
Speaking about collaborating with Ajay, the actor told Firstpost, "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. He 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."
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior also starred Kajol who shared screen space with Ajay Devgn after almost a decade.
