- Where are you living anyway?
You have no dignity.
Even during the daylight,
your mothers and sisters are not safe.
Your animals are dragged
away in your presence.
Brahmins can't pray,
farmers can't cultivate..
In fact, you can't even chant
Shri Ram's name during funeral rites.
And you call this a life.
How many more times
are you going to die?
There Alamgir breaks the
temple of Kashi Vishwanath..
..and here Udaybhan kills Kashi.
And we guard them.
- Tanhaji: If someone stands in front of you and says that he's not afraid of you..
Then understand, he is either mad..
..or a Maratha.
- Udaybhan Singh Rathore: Are you mad?
- Tanhaji: Every Maratha is mad..
For Swaraj (Self-rule)..
For Shivaji Raje..
For Saffron (Maratha flag)..
- Udaybhan Singh Rathore: I will eliminate the existence of the saffron..
..from the face of this earth.
