The Battle of Panipat is all set to be showcased on the silver screen by film-maker Ashutosh Gowariker as his upcoming larger than life film, Panipat, is taking shape and stars Sanjay Dutt and Arjun Kapoor in the lead roles. DNA reported that the director has casted Kriti Sanon to play the role of Parvatibai and has roped in Arjun Kapoor as well to play a heroic role. DNA quoted a source as saying,
"Kriti will essay the role of Sadashivrao's second wife Parvatibai. While the Maratha warrior marched towards the Afghans at the war, she was a constant support to Sadashivrao. When the Marathas went up North under Sadashivrao's leadership, Parvatibai was the one who escorted her husband and even got the other women in the Maratha camp to do pilgrimage at Mathura and Vrindavan. Not just that, Parvatibai was also present when the final battle was fought."
The Source Spilled The Beans About Panipat
"The film is about The Third Battle of Panipat which was fought between Marathas and Afghans in 1761. Arjun plays the Maratha army's leader Sadashivrao Bhau, whereas Sanjay will essay the main antagonist - Ahmad Shah Durrani, who led the Afghans to victory."
Maratha Warrior Sadashivrao Bhau
Reports were earlier doing the rounds that Arjun Kapoor has been offered a villainous role, but it turned out to be false as he's been casted to play the lead role of leader Sadashivrao Bhau, a Maratha warrior.
Kriti Sanon To Wield The Sword
The source also said to DNA that along with Sanjay Dutt and Arjun Kapoor's action-packed scenes, Kriti Sanon too, will wield the sword and indulge in war scenes.
Major Action Involving Sword Fighting & Horse Riding!
"The major chunk of action will revolve around Arjun and Sanjay's characters. But Kriti will also start prepping in sword-fighting to gear up for her role," the source summed it up to DNA.
