Recently in an interview with a daily portal, Saif Ali Khan talked about Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior's box office performance. In the movie, Saif had essayed the role of the antagonist Udaybhan Singh Rathod. After a series of box office duds, Tanhaji was Saif's first hit film in a while. 

In the interview, Saif Ali Khan said how certain things of the film made it do well at the box office. According to him, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior was a patriotic movie and had all the other elements of "being larger than life". However, he also felt that Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior was not expected to do as well as it did in terms of box office collection. 

Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior had minted a whopping ₹279.50 crores at the domestic box office and ₹350 crores worldwide. It is one of the highest-grossing movies of 2020 so far. During the first week itself, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior box office collection had crossed ₹100 crores.
