Recently, the actor has been doing a couple of interviews, promoting his film and he has mentioned his love for periodic films. When asked if he would love to make a biopic on any freedom fighter, he said he would love to make a film on the Maratha ruler, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

In 2002, Ajay Devgn starred in another biopic periodic drama, The Legend of Bhagat Singh. He played the lead role in the film and the actor won National awards for the film too. Bhagat Singh was a freedom fighter who had sworn by himself to free the nation from the British rule, after the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. A report mentions that Sunny Deol was the first choice for the film but, the makers then decided to choose Ajay Devgn because of his love for the film and also because he had the 'eyes of the revolutionary', and this proves that he has a soft corner for such films.
