Ashutosh Gowariker is excited about his upcoming project Panipat. The movie is a re-presentation of the ‘Third Battle of Panipat‘. It stars superstar Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles and is tentatively scheduled to go on floors by mid-2018.
Talking about the film’s cast, Ashutosh said,
“I shared screen space with Sanjay Dutt in Naam (1986), which was a memorable co-acting experience. It will be great to direct such a versatile and talented actor.”
“What impresses me the most about Arjun, apart from his fine performances, is his dynamism. He has played double roles twice [Aurangzeb (2013) and Mubarakan (2017)], and has portrayed an action hero as well as a lover boy”.
Ashutosh seemed quite excited to have Kriti Sanon on-board. He said,
“I needed someone who is beautiful and a good performer. The eclectic combination of these three is a first for me, and I look forward to this exciting journey with them.”
The period drama is produced by Sunita Gowariker and Rohit Shelatkar‘s company; Vision World. It is slated to release on December 6, 2019.
Talking about Gowariker at the box office, Rohit said,
“Ashutosh has a tremendous track record. Lagaan (2001), Jodhaa Akbar (2008) and Swades (2004) are my favourites. I am confident that he will represent the subject in the best cinematic form”.
