After Mohen-Jo Daro, Ashutosh Gowarikar is back with another period drama titled Panipat is an upcoming Hindi historical period drama film directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar starring Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Kriti Sanon. The film will be based on the Third Battle of Panipat that took place in 1761.
Source reveals, “Kriti will essay the role of Sadashivrao’s second wife Parvatibai. While the Maratha warrior marched towards the Afghans at the war, she was a constant support to Sadashivrao. When the Marathas went up North under Sadashivrao’s leadership, Parvatibai was the one who escorted her husband and even got the other women in the Maratha camp to do pilgrimage at Mathura and Vrindavan. Not just that, Parvatibai was also present when the final battle was fought.”
Along with the two male leads, she too will have some gruelling action sequences. “The major chunk of action will revolve around Arjun and Sanjay’s characters. But Kriti will also start prepping in sword-fighting to gear up for her role,” the source adds.
Arjun Kapoor and Ashutosh Gowarikar took to his twitter to share the poster and wrote, “Proud to bring the valour of the Maratha warriors to the big screen! Here’s the first Teaser Poster of #Panipat”
The film is scheduled to hit the theatres on 6 December 2019.
