Panipat: Arjun, Kriti, Sanjay Dutt to star in Gowariker’s historical drama

The film will bring on big screen the story behind third battle of Panipat, which was fought between the Maratha empire and the King of Afghanistan, Ahmad Shah Abdali

Mumbai: Filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker has moved on from the box-office debacle of Mohenjo Daro with a new historical drama based on the third battle of Panipat.

Featuring Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt the film is titled Panipat: The Great Betrayal and the first teaser poster was released today by the team.

“Historical dramas have always fascinated me. This time it is a story about what led to the Third Battle of #Panipat. Here’s the first Teaser Poster!!” Gowariker wrote on Twitter.

The film will bring on the big screen the story behind the third battle of Panipat, which was fought between the Maratha empire and the King of Afghanistan, Ahmad Shah Abdali.

“Proud to bring the valour of the Maratha warriors to the big screen! Here’s the first Teaser Poster of Panipat,” Arjun posted on Instagram.

“Proud to be a part of the recounting of bravery, passion and patriotism in the Third Battle of Panipat,” Kriti wrote.

The film, produced by Gowariker, wife Sunita and Rohit Shelatkar, will hit the cinemas on 6 December 2019.

Gowariker began his career with appearances in commercials and had his big-screen debut in Hindi cinema in Ketan Mehta’s Holi in 1984. This was followed by films such as Naam (1986), West Is West (1987), Gawahi (1989), and Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa (1993). He also acted in TV serials including Kachchi dhoop (1987), and Circus (1989). Toward the end of his acting career, before pursuing work as a director and screenwriter, he appeared in the Marathi-language films Vazir (1994) and Sarkarnama (1998).

In the 1990s Gowariker started to turn his interest behind the camera, directing films as well as contributing to their writing. His first directorial venture was the mystery drama Pehla Nasha(1993). He followed with the crime thriller Baazi (1995), which enjoyed average success. However, his magnum opus was the epic period drama Lagaan in 2001. Lagaan was nominated for an Academy Award for best foreign-language film and earned acclaim worldwide for its direction. His next film, Swades (2004), though not a box-office success, roused the interest of critics. Four years later Gowariker released his next film, the epic romance Jodhaa Akbar, set in the 16th century and starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai. In 2009 he branched out into romantic comedy with What’s Your Raashee?, and in 2010 he returned to period film with the thriller Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, set in the 1930s.
