Casting Coup: After Saif Ali Khan, Salman Khan To Also Join Ajay Devgn's 'Taanaji'?

Hack:

  • Saif Ali Khan was recently confirmed as the antagonist in the period drama and if latest reports are to be believed, another big name is likely to join the cast soon.
  • Salman is likely to step into shoes of Chhatrapatri Shivaji Maharaj in the biopic on Marathi warrior Taanaji Malusare.

It seems Bollywood is surely jumping on the multi-starrer bandwagon big time. After films like 'Thugs of Hindostan', 'Kalank', 'Brahmastra', featuring at least three superstars each, Ajay Devgn's 'Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior' seems to be latest to join the list. Saif Ali Khan was recently confirmed as the antagonist of the period drama, and if latest reports are to be believed, another big name is likely to join the cast soon. And it couldn't get any better than this with Salman Khan's name being linked with the film.

According to latest reports, Salman is likely to step into the shoes of Chhatrapatri Shivaji Maharaj in the biopic of the brave Marathi warrior Taanaji Malusare. The role is likely to be oa guest appearance as the movie mainly traces the journey of Tanaji, who was a warrior in Shivaji's army. So if the casting falls into place, Ajay will play the warrior in Salman's army as they go out against Saif, who plays the role of Udaybhan Rathod, the Rajput officer and fort keeper of Moghul army under Aurangzeb, in a battle that took place in 1670.

Salman and Ajay's friendship is well-known over the years, and it won't be the first time one is doing a cameo for the other.  Previously, Ajay had done a cameo in the 'Dabangg' actor's 'Ready' and the latter had returned the favour with an appearance in 'Son of Sardaar' a year later. Apart from that, they have featured together in two romantic triangles in full-fledged roles, 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' and 'London Dreams'. The film also brings together Ajay and Saif in similar roles after the critically acclaimed 'Omkara', directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.

Earlier, there were also reports of Kajol joining the cast of 'Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior', and if that turns out to be true, then this would surely be a massive casting coup. 'Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior', will be produced under Ajay Devgn's banner and is being helmed by Om Raut. It is scheduled to release in 2019.
