Box-office clashes seem to be the new normal in Bollywood. Just yesterday, Bhushan Kumar revealed that on January 10, 2020, the Ajay Devgn-starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior will release. And now, the makers of the Deepika Padukone-starrer 'Chhapaak' have disclosed that the biopic will grace the silver screen on the very same day!
This is also the first time that Bollywood actors Ajay Devgn and Deepika Padukone will be pitted against each other.
'Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior' tells the tale of Maharashtrian Koli military leader, Tanaji Malusare who fought alongside Chatrapathi Shivaji Maharaj in various battles over the years. He is most famously known for his role in the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670 A.D. As per media reports, the war epic also stars Saif Ali Khan in the lead, however, as an antagonist. This is after long 12 years Saif Ali Khan and Ajay Devgn will be reuniting on screen after their hit film 'Omkara'. Beside the lead actors, the film also stars Jagapati Babu, Ajinkya Deo, Pankaj Tripathi and Abdul Quadir Amin.
Meanwhile, 'Chhapaak' starring Deepika Padukone in the lead is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, who has endured the violence in 2015 while she was waiting at a bus stop in Delhi. Deepika Padukone will be playing the lead in the film and will be featured opposite 'Half Girlfriend' actor Vikrant Massey
