In one of the earlier interviews, Ajay Devgn said, “Salman Khan is not making Battle of Saragarhi. I am not too sure if somebody else is making it or not. I am making the film for sure, but I will take some time. I have always maintained that the film will be made on a very big scale and I will need, at least, two years’ time for that film. If anyone wants to make it, they can make it and release it as well. I will release my film after them, but I am making the film for sure.”
