Sanjay Dutt, Kriti Sanon, and Arjun Kapoor have all been roped in for the high-octane action film helmed by Ashutosh Gowariker. The film is based on the third battle of Panipat.

Ashutosh Gowariker is back with a bang after Mohenjo Daro. The project was announced on Wednesday (March 14) along with a teaser poster.

Kriti shared the first poster of the film on Twitter and wrote, “Proud to be a part of the recounting of bravery, passion, and patriotism in the Third Battle of #Panipat. Here’s the first Teaser Poster. @agpplofficial #sunitagowariker @AshGowariker @visionworldfilm #rohitshelatkar @arjunk26 @duttsanjay #PanipatTeaserPoster.”

In a discussion with Mid Day about the lead cast of the film, Gowariker said, “I shared screen space with Sanjay Dutt in Naam (1986), which was a memorable co-acting experience. It will be great to direct such a versatile and talented actor.”

He also talked about the other two lead actors, “What impresses me most about Arjun, apart from his fine performances, is his dynamism. He has played double roles twice [Aurangzeb, 2013 and Mubarakan, 2017], and has portrayed an action hero as well as a lover boy. I needed someone who is beautiful and a good performer (for the female lead). The eclectic combination of these three is a first for me, and I look forward to this exciting journey with them.”

Panipat is scheduled to hit theatres on December 6, 2019.
