For a while now, reports have been doing rounds that Kajol was in talks to star in Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior. The film which is a period drama is based on the life of Maratha military leader Tanaji Malusare who played a pivotal role in the 1670’s battle of Sinhagad. The film is being directed by Om Raut and stars Ajay Devgn who essays the titular role.
Now, a report in DNA suggested that Kajol has finally signed on the dotted lines and began shooting for the film yesterday.
A source revealed to the daily,
Kajol has begun shooting in Mumbai from yesterday. When she was approached for the film, she felt it’s the perfect script for her, since she already has a strong Marathi base.
Talking about Kajol’s role in the film, the director revealed,
Kajol and Ajay had been wanting to do a film for a long time. They kept getting fan mail and messages to reunite on screen. So, when Om was thinking of a heroine for the part, he immediately asked Ajay to bounce the idea off to Kajol.
Kajol and Ajay were last seen on-screen eight years ago in Toonpur Ka Superrhero and now we cannot wait to watch them on the 70 mm, again.
