Here's why Ajay Devgn decided to launch Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior in January
Bollywood Everything is ready to start 2020 with an explosion. Ajay Devgn's masterpiece Tanhaji : The Unsung Warrior 'arrives on the screens on January 10. In addition to Ajay, the film directed by Om Raut, presents Saif Ali Khan & Kajol in lead roles. Due to pending VFX work, the film’s release was moved from November 2019 to the January 10, 2020.These days most superstars prefer to release their big-ticket films on a festive weekend or during a holiday weekend. Earlier it was said that January isn’t a good period to release a film. But that changed when Uri: The Surgical Strike hit the screens on January 11, 2019. The film, which starred Vicky Kaushal & Yami Gautam, did great business at the box office. Vicky even got his first National Award for it.
During a recent interview, Ajay was asked about releasing Tanhaji on a non-holiday weekend. The bollywood actor explained that the release date suits him as there are no releases in the following two weeks. He also pointed out that usually there’s a rush on festival seasons, & so, they didn't want to be a part of the rush. When asked about the belief that films that release in January don’t do great business, he said that earlier January was considered jinxed because people used to say it's very cold in the winter in the North. But that belief has changed now.
