Saif plays the role of the antagonist Uday Bhan, while Kajol is seen as Savitribai Mausare, wife of the great warrior Tanaji Malusare.

Talking about the film, Ajay had earlier said, ''You have to be careful and honest to history. After from being careful, we followed the history. If someone asks us questions we can show that it is a part of history.'' "When you play the part of Tanhaji, who has been a such a big warrior hero, the responsibility is more. It is important you do not portray such characters wrongly," he added.
