The first look poster of Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon starrer Panipat has been unveiled.
Starring Zeenat Aman and Sanjay Dutt in key roles, Panipat is being helmed by a filmmaker known for directing period-dramas, Ashutosh Gowariker.
Kriti Sanon shared the film’s first look on her official Twitter handle and wrote, “Come Witness The Battle That Changed History, #Panipat.In Cinemas December 6th.”
The poster is a colorful mix of warm colours like red, brown and yellow. In the middle of it, armies out to battle in full gear are shown with the title of the film and a tagline that reads, “The battle that changed history.”
A second title beneath the title of the film reads, “The Great Betrayal.”
Ashutosh Gowariker will be returning to the director’s chair after Hrithik Roshan starrer Mohenjo Daro in 2016. Despite the scale and production of the film, Mohenjo Daro failed to impress critics and audience at large and flopped at the box office soon after its release.
Panipat will depict the story of the Third Battle of Panipat which was fought between the Maratha empire and the King of Afghanistan, Ahmad Shah Abdali.
Produced by Sunita Gowariker and Rohit Shelatkar, Panipat will release on 6 December 2019.
Veteran actress Padmini Kolhapure will also play a pivotal role in the film.
Ajay Atul is composing the music for the film and the songs will be written by Javed Akhtar.
