Ajay Devgan bags his third National Award

Superstar Ajay Devgan recently bagged his third National Award for his portrayal of great Maratha warrior Subedar Tanhaji Malusare in 2020 film 'Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior'. Co-produced by Ajay himself, the film was a critical and commercial hit at the time of its release and now it has managed to get the National Award for best popular film providing wholesome entertainment.

In a recent statement, Ajay said, “I’m elated to win the Best Actor Award for Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior at the 68th National Awards along with Suriya, who won for Soorarai Pottru...I thank everyone, most of all my creative team, the audience and my fans. I also express my gratitude to my parents and the Almighty for their blessings. Congratulations to all the other winners."

Ajay then went on to talk about the film and said, "As the producer of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, it gives me immense joy to receive an honour at the 68th National Film Awards 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, T-Series and my 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.”
