This is how Mr Devgn introduced the first poster of Taanaji. "He fought for his people, his soil and his King Chhatrapati Shivaji. The unsung warrior of glorious Indian history, Subedar Taanaji Malusare," he tweeted along with the poster.

Taanaji remains a prominent figure in the pages of Maratha history not only for his association with Maratha ruler Chhatrapati Shivaji but also for winning the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670. It is said that Taanaji reportedly conquered the fort of Kondana but was killed battling Mughal fortkeeper Udaybhan Rathod.
Directed by Om Raut, Taanaji is scheduled to hit screens next year.
Meanwhile, Ajay Devgn will next be seen in Milan Luthria's Baadshaho and also has Rohit Shetty's Golmaal Again in the pipeline.
