Last seen in Rajkumar Gupta’s espionage thriller India’s Most Wanted (2019), Arjun Kapoor will be capping off 2019 with the release of his most ambitious film Panipat. As the title of the film suggests itself, Panipat revolves around the third battle of Panipat which took place on 14 January 1761.



Kapoor is presently busy shooting for the war period drama. Since the actor plays a Maratha warrior in the movie, he has been working hard to achieve the perfect body of a warrior and slide into the skin of his character. Panipat is being directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, who is known for helming several period films.

Praising his director, Arjun Kapoor said to a newswire, “He is somebody who goes into tremendous detail and is a maker in the epic sense of the word. He has evolved into someone who is a gigantic storyteller who takes on these massive stories and allows them to unfold on the big screen.”

The actor went on to add that he is proud of being a part of Panipat. “We have all heard about the battle of Panipat, but we don’t know the importance behind it. We will soon come to know. It’s something I am very proud of being a part of. We worked very hard on it. I can now finally see the film coming together.”
