Reacting to his Twitter war, Ajay told IANS, "A war is happening?! Who is doing it? I feel there is no such war is taking place.

Tanhaji Is Ajay Devgn's 100th Film
Elaborating on this, the actor told Telegraph India, Mentally, I feel Tanhaji is my first film... it's just that two zeroes have been added to it (laughs). I am as anxious as I was when my first film (Phool Aur Kaante, 1991) released. You work so hard on every film and you want the audience to love what you have made. This anxiety always remains, no matter how many films you make. If I had to describe my 100-film journey in one word, it would be ‘satisfying'. When I was doing my first film, I never thought even that would get made... ab toh 99 filmein aur bann gaye hain!"
Ajay Devgn On Saif Ali Khan As His Co-star In The Film
"We've got along very well right from our first film, which was Kachche Dhaage (1999) and then we had Omkara (2006) a couple of years later. Unluckily, I would say, we didn't work together as much as we should have. For Tanhaji, we wanted someone (Saif plays Uday Bhan, who is at loggerheads with Tanhaji) who had personality and gravitas and I feel Saif is perfect for the role," the actor said in the same interview.
