The multilingual trilogy will be helmed by Sairat director Nagraj Manjule and backed by Deshmukh’s production banner- Mumbai Film Company.

“I have been wanting to make this film for a long time. I’m extremely excited to collaborate with Nagraj, who is one of the finest directors that we have in the country.

“As far as the success of Tanhaji or the success of any film is concerned, I feel it definitely adds to other films because it gives a boost to historical films or films in general for people to go to the theatre and come and experience it on the big screen. We are working hard. Hopefully it’ll be on floors (soon),” Deshmukh said in a group interview.
