Ashutosh Gowariker is excited about his upcoming project Panipat, a re – presentation of 3rd Battle of Panipat. The movie stars Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Kapoor & Kriti Sanon in the lead roles and is tentatively scheduled to go on floors by mid – 2018. Ashutosh said, “I shared screen space with Sanjay Dutt in Naam (1986), which was a memorable co – acting experience. What impresses me most about Arjun, apart from his fine performances, is his dynamism. He has played double roles twice (Aurangzeb, 2013 & Mubarakan, 2017), and has portrayed an action hero as well as a lover boy”. Ashutosh is excited to have Kriti Sanon on board. He added, “I needed someone who is beautiful & a good performer. The eclectic combination of these 3 is a 1st ever for me.” The action – packed period drama, is produced by Sunita Gowariker & Rohit Shelatkar’s company; Vision World, and is slated to release on 6th Dec, 2019. However, Gowariker’s last directorial venture, Mohenjo Daro (2016), did not do well on the Box – Office turnstiles, producer Rohit Shelatkar is certain that the filmmaker is perfect to wheel Panipat. “Ashutosh has a tremendous track record. Lagaan (2001), Jodhaa Akbar (2008) & Swades (2004) are my favourites. I am confident that he will represent the subject in the best cinematic form”.
