Tanaji Malusare was one of the generals of the seventeenth century Maratha unifier Shivaji and is renowned for his fight to the finish in the battle for Sinhagad in 1670 between the Maratha forces and a Mughal garrison led by Udaybhan Rathod.
Popular legend has it that Tanaji left his son’s wedding to lead his troops into battle at Shivaji’s bidding. The folk tale states that Tanaji and his men used a domesticated Bengal monitor lizard, known colloquially as a ghorpad, named Yashwanti to ascend the fort, which was believed to be impregnable, from the cliff side and surprised the garrison stationed there. While the Marathas took the fort after a fierce fight, Tanaji was killed.
Anees Bazmee’s multi-starrer comedy Pagalpanti, which was earlier scheduled to be released on 6 December, has advanced its release date to 22 November. Pagalpanti stars John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Ileana D’Cruz, Pulkit Samrat and Kriti Kharbanda.
T-Series, which is producing the film, announced the new release date on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Pandey’s Pati Patni Aur Woh is now set to take up the 6 December slot.
Aaryan announced the release date of the film on his Instagram account and also hinted that his character name is Chintu Tyagi.
