It was earlier this year when Ajay Devgn had announced his ambitious project Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior which was supposed to go on floors by now. However, the project got delayed as they as they faced casting woes. The film, now in the pre-production stage, is expected to roll soon but it seems Ajay had a hard time convincing his Omkara co-star Ajay Devgn to play a sidekick in the movie if a report in Deccan Chronicle is believed. 

Apparently, Saif had taken a vow to not play the second fiddle to any hero in a film after Kal Ho Na Ho where he was seen sharing screen space with Shah Rukh Khan. It apparently took a lot from Ajay who personally met and convinced him to take up the role, which according to him is very unique and challenging and is a vital role. If Saif finally gives his nod, it will be interesting to see how their chemistry exudes onscreen. 

About the same, the source informed DC that neither Saif nor the studio has confirmed this latest development so it is not sure if Saif has finally taken up the movie or not. If rumours are to be believed, Kajol might also be a part of the movie. No official confirmation on the same has been received so far. 

Meanwhile, Saif has Bazaar releasing soon. He was last seen in Netflix original series Sacred Games. On the other hand, Ajay has Total Dhamaal releasing this November wherein he is seen alongside Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor among others. The movie promises to be a rollercoaster. 


If Kajol does this mvie, it will be another level!

Saif needs to work with Anurag Kashyap...Kashyap can do another Langda Tyagi with him

What? That can't be true. Saif has played supporting actor MANY times since Kal Ho Na Ho, to Amitabh, Shahid, Nawazuddin, Ajay himself. I think it would be awesome after Omkara. Saif should do it, he's super underrated.

He announced it last year?? Ohh now Karan johar also announced takth in 2019..Taanaji vs Takth??? Uhhh seriously why this guys fight every time???.... Saif must have thought if that happens his wife is in Takht... Director is Karan.. Who is going to launch his daughter Sara.. May be that's why he's thinking

I think Saif Ali Khan is an underrated actor because of his box office failure.. He's exceptionally talented.. He need to collaborate with right people.. He should accept the role of Antoganist this time.. Because doing this periodic film will definitely take him to another level.. Ajay devgan vs Saif.. Both are so good at acting.. Thant will be dream cast for a periodic movie... Director of this film is also exceptionally talented.. He has directed movie on lokamanya tilak... Such a talented director.. Saif should do it

Hello Kareena, Saif is neither talented nor versatile. He is a boring actor. If not nepotism he would never be given a film chance. In a career of three decades even I would do better with so many film chances to improve

I agree with you on all points. He is a good actor. He has looks to work in period dramas. I don't understand why he stopped working as supporting actor after Kal Ho na Ho, he is really good in these type of roles, goofy and cute.
