After Hrs was the first to tell you that Kajol will be seen in husband Ajay Devgn’s ambitious project Taanaji. While the Raid actor will play the titular part, the Helicopter Eela actress, who has a guest appearance in the movie, will play his wife. The real-life couple will be seen on the screen together after a decade.
Saif Ali Khan, who essays the character of the prime antagonist, Udaybhan Rathore, in the period costume drama, has already begun shooting earlier this month. Now, Kajol, too, has joined the crew. Our source reveals, “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.” Her mother Tanuja’s family, the Samarths, are Maharashtrian.
While the war saga will revolve mostly around Ajay’s character and his battle with Saif, Kajol will have a small but prominent part in it. “It’s not a typical role. Her character stands tall and strong right beside her warrior husband.”
Director Om Raut has reiterated that she would be ‘apt’ for the role. He says, “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.” Clearly, her husband’s narration left her impressed. And now, their fans have something to rejoice about.
