Directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar, Panipat is a period movie based on the third battle of Panipat.
While Arjun plays with Sadashivrao Bhau, who functioned as the sardar senapati (commander-in-chief) of the Maratha forces, Kriti Sanon is his spouse Parvati Bai at the movie. Sanjay Dutt plays the creator of the Durrani empire, Ahmad Shah Abdali. The trailer reveals not only the Marathas taking a stand against Abdali but additionally Parvati jumping from the battle with a sword. Authentic to Ashutosh's style of filmmaking, the trailer seems grand and persuasive. But, an individual can't help remembering a few scenes out of Ranveer Singh starrer Padmaavat.
Panipat also celebrities Mohnish Bahl, Padmini Kolhapure, Mir Sarwar and Zeenat Aman. The movie is scheduled to launch on December 6. Before, Ashutosh shared with a brand new poster of this movie and captioned it,"Largest Battles Have Best Stories!" The next battle of Panipat was fought between the northern expeditionary force of the Maratha Empire along with the invading forces of the King of Afghanistan, Ahmad Shah Abdali, supported by 2 Indian allies - the Rohilla Afghans of their Doab and Shuja-ud-Daula, the Nawab of Awadh.
Speaking about working on the movie, Arjun had told IANS, "It's my very first time film and my very first movie with Ashu (Ashutosh Gowariker) sir. He's among the best directors of the nation. He's made amazing movies like Lagaan, Jodhaa Akbar and Swades. I actually had fun working on Panipat and today I'm feeling depressed that shooting of the movie is finished because I learnt a great deal in the procedure."
On the casting, Gowariker had previously said in a media statement:"I've shared display space with Sanjay in Naam, which had been a memorable co-acting encounter and today it'll be great to steer such a versatile and exceptionally talented performer as him. ''``What annoys me most about Arjun, aside from his fine performances - is his dynamism.
He's played double roles twice, and he's depicted an action hero in addition to a lover boy," the filmmaker said about Arjun. He added his female guide is equally a fantastic actress as well as amazing. "I had somebody quite beautiful and a fantastic performer, also Kriti is equally. The diverse blend of those three is a first for me, and I anticipate this exciting trip with them known as Panipat," he'd said.
