Reacting to a Twitter war that has erupted over the issue, Ajay said with a laugh: “A war is happening?! Who is doing it? I feel there is no such war is taking place.

Ajay and Saif comes together after 12 years for Tanhaji

Talking about initial audience response to “Tanhaji”, Ajay said: “I am happy because our film has released today. Yesterday, the media watched the film and most of them have given it a four-star rating. If the media all across the country have liked the film then, I am hopeful that the audience will also appreciate it. I urge the audience to go and watch the film in theatres because this kind of film hasn”t been made earlier on such a big scale and with such advanced technology. Apart from that, the story, the emotions, the drama and the action has worked really well as per the media and my opinion, so I keep my fingers crossed.”

Asked what kind of response he has got from school kids at the special screening, he replied: “We got lovely response from the school kids. They were asking questions to us. Honestly, when kids ask you questions, it comes from their heart and it feels really nice.”

“Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior” is a biographical period action drama in 3D, starring Ajay Devgan, Saif Ali Khan, Kajol and Sharad Kelkar. The film is directed by Om Raut. Set in the 17th century, it is based on the life of Tanaji Malusare, who was a subedar in the army of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, founder of the Maratha Empire.
