Mumbai: Ajay Devgn’s ‘Son of Sardaar 2’ has an important reference to Indo-British history. The ambitious magnum-opus is being touted to be on the lines of Hollywood historical action thrillers!

Ajay Devgn's portrayal as Bhagat Singh in the ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh’ won him a National Award and critical acclaim, and the actor has chosen another tale which resounds of grandeur in its unparalleled tryst with history. We have learnt from reliable sources that ‘Son Of Sardaar 2’ is based on the historic Battle of Saragarhi which was fought before the Tirah Campaign on 12 September 1897 between 21 Sikhs of the 36th Sikh Regiment (now the 4th Battalion of the Sikh Regiment) of British India, defending an army post, and more than 10,000 Afghan and Orakzai tribesmen.

After he completes his directorial venture ‘Shivaay’, that is going on floors this December, he will start shooting for ‘Son Of Sardaar 2’ which will be released on Diwali 2017.

Ajay Devgn tweeted:


The Battle at Saragarhi is one of eight stories of collective bravery published by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). It has been mentioned as one of the five most significant events of its kind in the world which includes the Battle of Thermopylae associated with the heroic stand of a small Greek force against the mighty Persian Army of Xerxes I in 480 B.C.
