Now we come to the music
In the trailer we hear the track ‘Ra Ra Ra’ and fans are eager to hear more! From creating thumping beats to match his grandeur to defining the war cry of the sena – here’s a glimpse of Sachet – Parampara sharing insights on the making of ‘Ra Ra Ra’.
We also have to share the first song ‘Shankara Re Shankara’, which showcases the celebration and power.
The power-packed song features Ajay Devgn and Saif Ali Khan’s interesting encounter. The grand song has been composed & sung by Mehul Vyas and has been penned by Anil Verma. The song has been choreographed by Ganesh Acharya.
Talking about the song, director Om Raut shares, “Marathas were masters of disguise. The Shankara song revolves around an incident when Tanhaji came face to face with Udaybhan but not in the battlefield. Mehul Vyas and Anil Verma have done a fabulous job in putting the song together. The audience will be treated both audibly and visually during the Shankara Song.”
Apparently he is right because the song already has hit over 16 million within one day of release!
The Ajay Devgn starrer Tanhaji The Unsung Warrior produced by Ajay Devgn’s ADF and Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, directed by Om Raut, will release on 10th January 2020.
We can’t wait to see more, and then see this story come to life on the big screen!
Stay tuned for much more!
