Ajay Devgn starrer ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ to be made tax-free in Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh

Tanhaji and Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak went head to head at the box office on Friday. Tanhaji in the opening day did a business of Rs 16 crore while Chhapaak tanked and managed to rake in only Rs. 4.75 crores. 

The Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government is all set to make Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior tax free in the state. According to sources, the notification for the same is set to be out later today.

The Ajay Devgn starrer details the Battle of Sinhagad that was fought between the Tanaji Malusare, a military commander under Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Uday Singh Bhan for the Kondana Fort. After a bitter duel between Tanaji and Bhan, the fort was reclaimed by the Marathas in the year 1670.

It was in this battle that Tanaji Malusare laid his life down while fighting Uday Bhan. In his honour, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj had renamed the Kondana fort to ‘Sinhagad’.

The famous one liner of Shivaji Maharaj, ‘Gadh Ala, Pan Singh Gela’ was said afterr Tanaji laid his life down, essentially meaning that the Marathas won the fort, but lost the lion.

The movie is a grand display of cultural pride and historical grandios of the Marathas. In fact, the distinctly Hindu symbolism in the movie did not go down well with several “liberals” who criticised the movie for being “Islamophobic” and “promoting Hindutva”.

The Left wing propaganda website The Wire even managed to somehow connect the movie with Prime Minister Modi and Amit Shah. Calling it a tribute to ‘Hindu Rashtra’, The Wire wrote, “less of a feature film and more of a presentation to Modi and Amit Shah’ to realise their deeply egregious ideas about India. ‘Tanhaji’ tells a deeply divisive story when the country is on the brink of getting torn”.

The Quint, was not to be left behind. “The underscoring of the characters’ religion, however, occurs most prominently during the songs. From ‘Maay Bhawani’ to ‘Shankara Re Shankara’, the songs picturised on Tanhaji and his wife Savitribai Malusare (played by Kajol) seamlessly integrate religious positivity with the side of the protagonists. By association, therefore, Tanhaji and those fighting with him receive divine sanction in the minds of the viewers. They are righteous. They are the ones fighting the good fight,” wrote Quint.

Tanhaji and Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak went head to head at the box office on Friday. Tanhaji in the opening day did a business of Rs 16 crore while Chhapaak tanked and managed to rake in only Rs. 4.75 crores.
