Director Ashutosh Gowariker, who has gifted us several gems in the past, is now all set to treat his audiences to yet another masterpiece.
He is currently gearing up to release his film, Panipat, which features Sanjay Dutt, Kriti Sanon & Arjun Kapoor in the lead.
The team recently unveiled a new poster featuring the trio and the trailer digitally. The trailer showcases the Maratha empire and its epic tale.
Set in 1761, Panipat is about the Maratha Empire. It had reached its zenith at that point and their grip on India reigned supreme with no one to challenge them. Then, an invader set his eyes on the throne of Hindustan.
That is when Sadashiv Rao Bhau (played by Arjun Kapoor), the Commander-in-Chief of the Maratha army, led a northern expedition to repel the invading forces of Ahmad Shah Abdali (Sanjay Dutt), the ruler of Afghanistan.

Talking about the film, Shibasish Sarkar, Group CEO, Reliance Entertainment, says, “We are glad to be associated with Ashutosh and his magnum opus which will show one of the biggest ever battles fought in the world. The trailer of Panipat is already winning hearts all over the country and we hope the audiences give all their love to our film.”

Belonging to the Marathi Community,I have aspired to bring more stories of Maratha legends to the forefront and this association with the esteemed Ashutosh Gowarikar – director of illustrious movies like Jodha Akbar, Swades and Lagaan, has been a dream come true.”
