      Saif during an interview with Anupama Chopra, referring to Tanhaji's history alteration said, "I don't think this is history. I don't think there was a concept of India till the British gave it one." The conversation started about Tanhaji's politics and alteration to history in the film.

      Anupama asked if it made him change his mind of playing the character, Saif said, "For some reason, I didn't take a stand. Maybe next time I would. I was very excited to play the role because it's a delicious role. But when people say this is history, I don't think this is history. I am quite aware of what the history was."

      He then added, "I don't think there was a concept of India till perhaps the British gave it one. I don't think there is really any constructive point in arguing about loudly, provided you yourself know why you're doing it."
