In the movie, Ajay Devgn plays the brave Maratha warrior Tanhaji Malusare, who fought the Battle of Sinhagad against Udaybhan Singh Rathod, played by Saif Ali Khan. Maratha leader Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj wanted to recapture Kondhana fort from the Mughals, and Tanhaji took charge of the battle.
In the battle, Tanaji lost his life but ensured victory for the Marathas. Despite the victory, Shivaji Maharaj was unhappy and famously said “gad alaa pan sinha gelaa” which translates to “the fort is captured but the lion (Tanaji Malusare) has gone.” Shivaji Maharaj renamed the Kondana fort as Sinhagad fort in the honour of Tanaji (‘Sinha’ meaning lion).
