It is sufficient evidence that Ajay Devgn does not gush over accolades since he rarely attends award ceremonies. But the National Award trophies he has collected over the years hold a particular place in his heart. He discovered that he would be recognised with the Best Actor award for Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior (2020) at the 68th National Film Awards while filming in Hyderabad for his upcoming directorial effort, Bholaa. This would be Devgn's third National Award, following Zakhm (1998) and The Legend of Bhagat Singh (2002). The Saif Ali Khan and Kajol-starring movie also took home prizes for Best Costume Design and Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment.

During an interaction with Mid Day, Devgn said that awards are a reiteration of work well done. He doesn't make movies with the intention of winning an award. As a result, whenever it does, it inspires him to become a better version of himself. But they don't decide what roles or movies she should play, as a lifelong love is movies. The actor feels drawn to portraying characters who show bravery, fortitude, and sacrifice because doing so offers him a different high.

Devgn, who also served as the movie's producer, can handle most roles with ease, but the period action drama was no stroll in the park for him. According to the actor, the position of a producer was more difficult for him than playing Tanhaji, but he just had to feel the fire in his belly. Pre-production and post-production take months to complete, while mega-budgets, endurance, and patience are required for any movie involving visual effects.

When asked why the movie merited a national prize, the actor-director is quick to respond that it offers family-friendly entertainment. Strong patriotic sentiments, excellent VFX, sincere performances, and honesty in every department are all present in this film. Tanhaji had it all, from big sets and meticulously studied costumes to music that played continuously. From six to 60, everyone found it appealing.

Devgn acknowledges Om Raut, who directed the film, as well as costume designers Nachiket Barve and Mahesh Sherla, for their work in the production. It's wonderful when any component of cinema receives praise. Om and he collaborated closely with Nachiket and Mahesh, and they deserve praise.
