Panipat Story

Panipat is a 2019 Bollywood historical drama, helmed by Ashutosh Gowariker. The movie stars Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles. The film is based on on the Third Battle of Panipat which was fought between the northern expeditionary force of the Maratha Empire and invading forces of the King of Afghanistan, Ahmad Shah Abdali, supported by two Indian allies-the Rohilla Afghans of the Doab, and Shuja-ud-Daula, the Nawab of Awadh.

Set in 18th century India, Ashutosh Gowariker's 'Panipat' begins with a glimpse into the valour of Sadashivrao Bhau (Arjun Kapoor), commander-in-chief of Maratha army as he tactfully defeats the Nizam of Udgir. On returning back to Pune after the victory, Nana Saheb Peshwa (Mohnish Bahl) showers him with praises. Meanwhile, Peshwa's wife Gopikabai (Padmini Kolhapure) begins to resent Sadashivrao as she sees the latter as a threat to her son Vishwarao's position as the next Peshwa. Meanwhile, Najib-Ud-Daula (Mantra), a Rohilla who was a Mughal serviceman forms alliance with Afghan cheftain Ahmad Shah Abdali (Sanjay Dutt). He also convinces Shuja-ud-Daula, the Nawab of Oudh to join Abdali's forces against the Marathas. As the Afghan ruler sets out to conquer the takht of Hindostan, the Maratha Peshwa chooses Sadashiv to crush Abdali's lofty ambitions. What follows next is one of the largest and gruesome battle of the 18th century.

The movie is produced by Sunitha Gowariker and Rohit Shelatkar under the banner Ashutosh Gowariker productions. As per the initial reports Panipat will hit the big screens on December 6, 2019.
