Subedar Taanaji Malusare, an able warrior, fought alongside Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The film will reportedly narrate the events that led to the Battle of Sinhagad and the war itself.
The battle took place on the night of February 4, 1670, at the fort of Sinhagad near Pune. Malusare's efforts to win the Singhad Fort will be showcased in the film.
Speculations are rife that Saif Ali Khan may play an important role in the film. However, there is no confirmation regarding the same. He may play Udaybhan Rathod, fort-keeper under Jai Singh I, the Mughal Army Chief.
Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior is slated to release on November 22, 2019.
