Celebrating the vigour and valour of the Marathas, the channel will premiere the historical drama ‘Panipat’ on Saturday, 11th March. Ace director Ashutosh Gowariker’s magnum opus delves into a significant chapter in the Indian history that lauds that unshakeable bravery, courage and the strong principles of the Marathas displayed during the Third battle of Panipat. Referred to as protectors and not fighters, the Marathas fought fiercely till their last breath just to keep their motherland safe from the Afghani invaders. Comprising of an ensemble cast, the movie features Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Kriti Sanon in pivotal roles amongst others.
Speaking about experience while working on Panipat, Arjun Kapoor’s said, “This was my first historic film. Ashutosh Sir’s narration of the film made me understand that this battle is something that changed the path of our country’s history forever. Hence, that was one of the reasons for me to do a movie like Panipat. Ashu sir had envisioned the character in a certain way and I just converted that vision and brought it to life."
Essaying the role of Paravati Bai, Kriti Sanon said, “Just like other heroines in Ashutosh Sir’s films, my character Parvati Bai is a powerful and independent woman who is a vaidya (physician). She is emotionally and physically strong and is one of the important characters during the Third battle of Panipat. Initially when the character was narrated to me, I didn’t realise how courageous and fearless she was. Parvati Bai is someone who knows sword fighting and doesn’t fear from coming to the forefront to guard her people. Unlike the other female characters of that time, she is also very vocal and doesn’t hesitate about expressing her love for and to her husband Sadashiv Rao. All in all, it was really a unique experience portraying this role.”
