It is the starting of the year and Bollywood is all set for some blockbuster releases this year. The audience is waiting for two of the big historical movies to release this year. On the one hand, Kangana Ranaut’s starrer movie Manikarnika: The queen of Jhansi portraying the life of Rani Laxmi Bai has already come up with its trailer release while on the other, Taanaji is a story of the Maratha commander Tanaji Malusare played by famous actor Ajay Devgn in the movie.
Recently, the director of the movie, Om Raut shared the first look of the lead actor Ajay as Taanaji on his Instagram, adding, “Happy New Year!!! Har Har Mahadev!!! @ajaydevgn @TanhajiFilm.” The shot shows the actor and his men jumping off a cliff dressed in typical Maratha attire with the help of thick ropes. The picture only gives a glimpse of the actor with his face half draped and hidden with a white cloth. The intense look and the sword in Ajay’s hand depict it all in the appropriate way.
With some of the pictures that the director of the movie has been sharing on his social media, we came to know that the famous Baahubali series art director, Sabu Cyril is responsible for the creation of the looks for Taanaji.
Ajay Devgn had an average year if we talk about his films in 2018. Even though Raj Kumar Gupta directed movie Raid did well on the big screen, Kajol’s starrer movie Helicopter Eela which was produced by Ajay Devgn was not able to win the hearts of the viewers.
On a relatable note, the actor will further be seen in Akiv Ali directed movie De De Pyaar De against Rakul Preet Kaur and Total Dhamaal sharing the screen with celebrities like Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit and Eesha Gupta this year.
