Bringing together Bollywood actors Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Kriti Sanon for his upcoming film, director Ashutosh Gowarikar, announced his next massive project ‘Panipat’ – a period drama. The movie is based on the story behind third battle of Panipat, which was fought between the Maratha empire and the King of Afghanistan, Ahmad Shah Abdali. The first look teaser poster of the period drama was released today.

Historical drama films are considered to be Ashutosh’s forte. He has delivered the massive hits ‘Lagaan’ and ‘Jodhaa Akbar’ in the same genre. Expectations from ‘Panipat’ already seem high considering his last film, ‘Mohenjo Daro’, that tanked at the box office.

AGPPL (Ashutosh Gowariker Productions Pvt. Ltd) and Vision World have collaborated for the first time to bring ‘Panipat’ to the big screen on December 6, 2019.
