Actor Ajay Devgn says he will wrap up the shooting for his upcoming film, Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior in May.
Talking about the current scenario where filmmakers are making movies on historical figures apart from Mughal Emperors like Akbar and Jahangir, Devgn said, "We have read about Tanaji Malusare when we were in a school, and now the time is changing where people are exploring different stories and characters who were popular figures in the history."
"Now a younger generation is aware that there are lots of historical figures on which we can make films apart from four or five historical figures," added Devgn, who will be seen playing the title role of Subedar Taanaji Malusare, a military leader in Shivaji's army."
Speaking about the shooting of the film, he said, "By May this year, we will wrap up shooting of the film and it will be released in November."
Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior is a period drama directed by Om Raut. It is co-produced by Devgn and Bhushan Kumar. The film is scheduled for a worldwide release on November 22.
The Raid (2018) actor is also gearing up for the release of his forthcoming film, Total Dhamaal, which is the third film in the comedy entertainer franchise, Dhamaal.
On being asked what urged him to be a part of the comedy entertainer, he said, "It's a two-hour five-minute film. I laughed so much when I heard script of this film for the first time so, I told Indra Kumar that if you make the film in the same manner as you have narrated its script to me then I will do this film."
