There may be an alarming new formulation for pseudo-historical potboilers on Hindi cinema. The courageous indomitable: Hindu warrior versus the evil Islamic invader. A variety of current movies have adopted this pattern – Akshay Kumar’s Kesari, Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt’s Panipat and now Ajay Devgn and Saif Ali Khan’s Tanhaji which is doing nice enterprise on the field workplace.
Not too long ago in an interview with Anupama Chopra Saif Ali Khan talking on the distortion of historical past in Tanhaji and different movies , stated, “It bothers me as an Indian or a human being…Perhaps I’d be extra cautious subsequent time… I don’t suppose that is historical past. I’m conscious of what historical past was. I don’t suppose there was an idea of India until the British got here alongside.”
Predictably Saif has been slammed for his feedback on the social media. Whereas many have ridiculed him for what they see as his restricted data of historical past others are condemning him for popping out towards his personal movie.
Whereas Saif has correctly determined to remark no extra on Indian cinema’s sense of historical past a supply near the actor says, “Saif’s honesty has all the time been an issue. He speaks his thoughts, and faces the results. He not too long ago made it very clear that he didn’t a lot care for the trailer of his daughter Sara Ali Khan’s subsequent launch Love Aaj Kal. Now he has spoken up in regards to the nebulous sense of historical past in his personal starrer Tanhaji.”
We hear Ajay Devgan who produces and performs the lead in Tanhaji is not very amused by his co-star’s candour. Will it have an effect on their friendship? It stays to be seen.
