Arjun Kapoor’s last film Namaste England could not do well at the box office and miserably failed at the theaters. However, the actor has begun the shooting of his next venture Panipat. Helmed by Ashutosh Gowarike, the film is based upon the third battle of Panipat.
The Ishqzaade actor took to his official Instagram account and wrote, “Embarking on a journey like never before.. with Ashu sir & our entire team. #Panipat#PanipatShootBeginsToday @agpplofficial…”
The film is the based on the real incidence when the invading army of the King of Afghanistan,Ahmad Shah Abdali, supported by two Indian allies – the Rohilla Afghans of the Doab and Shuja-ud-Daula, the Nawab of Awadh.
From the poster we can get an idea that there must be a betrayal which led to the defeat of the great Maratha forces. This incidence is pretty much important in modern Indian history and it also led to the rise of British in India.
If reports are to be believed then Arjun Kapoor will be portraying Maratha Commander-in-chief Sadashiv Rao Bhau and we also have Kriti Sanon as the female lead who will play his wife, Parvati Bai.
The 33-year-old actor has gone bald for the role and was recently seen outside Amrita Arora’s residence.
Speaking about his choice of Arjun, Gowariker had earlier said, “What impresses me most about Arjun, apart from his fine performances – is his dynamism. He has played double roles twice, and he has portrayed an action hero as well as a lover boy.”
Arjun Kapoor is said to be dating Malaika Arora and the duo has seen together a lot of times and recently, in the most-talked show Koffee with Karan season 6, the actor revealed that he is not single and he is now ready to get married.
