On New Years 2019, the director of the film, Om Raut, took to his Twitter handle to wish everyone Happy New Year and treated fans with the first look poster of the historical drama.
The poster featured Ajay, who appeared to be in a war zone with a sword in his hands and ready to fight wearing his classic subedar outfit. While the face of the actor is half covered in the poster, Ajay’s eyes looked intense, fierce and loaded with anger.
The ‘Golmaal’ star will be seen essaying the role of the unsung warrior of Indian history, Subedar Taanaji Malusare, who fought alongside Chatrapathi Shivaji Maharaj. While Ajay essays the title role, Kajol plays Laxmi Bai, his wife. The film also stars Saif, who will play the role of an antagonist, Uday Bhan, a Rajput official who works for Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb.
Apart from this, Ajay will also star in ‘De De Pyaar De’ and SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’.
