It looks like Bollywood fell in love with periodic dramas and the trend is not going to be dying soon. Already few periodic drama films were on sets now one more periodic drama film has been announced. Mohenjo Daro director Ashutosh Gowariker will direct this film titled as ‘Panipat’ which stars Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon in key roles.
The film is based on the Third Battle of ‘Panipat’ and will focus on the battles that the Mughals fought with various other Indian kingdoms. The film’s first poster is out and is quite impressive. The first poster presents a sword with a hand on top. The colors which were used in the poster give a feeling of rage that perfectly fits the war setting of the film.
The director stated that he was always fascinated by Historical dramas from the beginning, that is why he choose a story about what led to the Third Battle of Panipat.
On the other hand, Ashutosh’s last film was Hrithik Roshan-Pooja Hegde-starrer ‘Mohenjo Daro’ which proved a box-office dud. Now the director is pinning to bounce back with this film. The film is slated for release on December, 6th, 2019. Stay tuned for this space for more updates.
