EXCLUSIVE! Ajay Devgn on winning his third National Award: Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior was special because it came together so beautifully | Hindi Movie News

Ajay Devgn, who won the Best Actor Award for
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, shared the honour with Suriya, who won for
Soorarai Pottru. This marks Ajay’s third Best Actor National Award. He has previously won the honour for
Zakhm (1998) and
The Legend of Bhagat Singh (2002). The actor, who is currently busy doing what he loves the most – making films, says, “I am happy that Tanhaji—The Unsung Warrior did so well at the 68th National Awards. I congratulate Suriya, the makers of
Soorarai Pottru and all my fellow winners. As for my personal celebration, it will have to hold. I’m in the middle of a gruelling schedule for
The film, which Ajay co-produced, also won the Best Popular Film – Providing Wholesome Entertainment Award. Reflecting on it, Ajay says, “As the producer of the film, it gives me immense joy to receive the award for the Best film that has provided wholesome entertainment. Tanhaji was exactly that. It is a good story of friendship, loyalty, family values and sacrifice. It has strong national sentiments, super VFX and a holistic approach in entertainment. I must share the honour with my director Om Raut, my co-producers and co-actors. Most of all, I thank my creative team, who has contributed handsomely to making this a blockbuster and now a National Award-winner.”

Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior was Ajay’s 100th film as an actor. Does that make this victory more special? “Honestly, all films are special,” he says, adding, “I’m so passionate about my cinema, it’s hard to choose the 100th film above the 99th one. Yes, I agree that
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is special because it came together so beautifully.”

The actor had announced that the film marked the beginning of the
Unsung Warrior franchise. Ask him if this win gives his plans a boost further, and he says, “The
Unsung Warriors franchise is definitely on. We are working on it and already have one in the pipeline. However, a franchise like this needs a lot of patience and research. So, the progress will be slower than in the case of regular cinema.”
