Saif Ali Khan also talked about the controversy of factual inaccuracies in the movie Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. He said he should have taken a stand about it and from the next time he would. He also said that he is still sure about what he said and what the actual history of Tanhaji is.
Apparently, Saif Ali Khan reportedly had said he would like to be a part of the film industry that stood by what was correct and not change facts to make a mass-pleasing film. He also said changing certain facts in the film to make it more likeable must have given that "extra kind of bump" which made Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior's box office collection soar high. He also said there was a particular idea which appealed to the masses.
