Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is based on the life of Tanhaji Malusare who served as the military leader of Maratha Emperor Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. In the film Ajay Devgn played the role of Tanhaji while Sharad Kelkar made a brief appearance in the film as the latter.
Tanhaji revolves around the warrior’s battle against Udaybhan Singh Rathore, a trusted guard of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb for the Kondhana fortress. The motive for Aurangzeb wanting to capture this fort was to spread control of the Mughal empire towards the south of the country. Saif portrays the guard Udaybhan with Luke Kenny appearing as Aurangzeb in Tanhaji.
