However, Ajay later confirmed his version of the movie will not go on floors anytime soon.

Earlier there were reports that Saif Ali Khan will play Shivaji in this Ajay starrer. However, the Sacred Games actor refuted all the stories and revealed that his character is more of an Anti-Hero. A source told DNA, “The Taanaji team believes that Saif will make for an interesting choice to play Udaybhan Rathod, the Rajput officer and fort keeper appointed by Jai Singh, chief of the Moghul army under Aurangzeb. The film recounts the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670, which was fought between Tanaji Malusare, a commander in Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s army, and Udaybhan.
