Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior trailer: Tanaji died fighting Uday Bhan but secured the hill fort of Kondhana for the Maratha empire
Ajay Devgn, who portrays the role of Tanaji Malusare – Maratha ruler Chhatrapati Shivaji’s general, in upcoming period piece Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, shared the second trailer of the film. “4th Feb 1670: The battle that brought the entire nation to a standstill. Witness the moment history was created,” he wrote in a tweet, referring to the Battle Of Sinhagad, when Rajput fort-keeper Uday Bhan (played by Saif Ali Khan in the movie) attacked the hill fort of Kondhana during Chhatrapati Shivaji’s rule. Tanaji – the titular “unsung warrior” – died fighting Uday Bhan but secured the hill fort of Kondhana for the Maratha empire during the battle. After the battle, Chhatrapati Shivaji renamed the hill fort of Kondhana as Sinhagad or ‘lion’s fort’ as a tribute to Tanaji’s bravery.
