    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."
