Mumbai: Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Chhapaak clashed at the box office this weekend.
While Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is a period drama and marks Ajay Devgn’s 100th film, it also features Kajol and Saif Ali Khan in lead roles.
On the other hand, Chhapaak stars Deepika Padukone in the lead role and chronicles the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.
Ajay’s Tanhaji is a commercial entertainer laced with extravagant CGI effects and action sequences. With Maratha glory added to it, the film also has a strong hold in particular regions.
On the other hand, Deepika’s recent surprise visit to JNU ha brewed new controversies. Meghna Gulzar’s directorial rides high on emotional content and targets urban multiplex-goers.
