The first posters of Om Raut’s film Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior dropped a few weeks back, and the one thing that was unmissable was the uncanny resemblance of Saif Ali Khan’s character with that of Jon Snow from Game of Thrones. Soon, the comparisons surfaced online and in a recent round of interviews, the actor was asked to comment on the ongoing comparisons as well.
Saif and Ajay spilled some beans about their relationship, their reunion after Omkara in Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and more in a chat with Pinkvilla. When the actors' duo was questioned about the comparisons, Saif stated, "I think we are influenced a lot. I can see why they make that connection, it because of a certain pose. It was silly of me or whoever organized the shoot," to which Ajay added too, "But, it just happens that you don't remember that time. There are so many movies made every year globally. Comparisons will always be made"
Further, the Nawab had a yet sassy reply stating that he things Tanhaji’s Udaybhan is way cooler than Jon Snow. "Also, I love Jon Snow, I love Game Of Thrones but I think Udaybhan Rathod is 20 times cooler and a badass than Jon Snow. I don't think Jon Snow doesn't stand a chance in front of this guy. In terms of performance and everything," said Saif.
Besides Ajay and Saif, the historical period drama also stars Kajol, Jagapathi Babu and Sharad Kelkar in the lead roles. Based on the life of Maratha warrior Tanhaji Malusare, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is scheduled to be theatrically released in 3D on 10 January 2020.
