The trailer for Ashutosh Gowariker’s upcoming period drama Panipat just dropped and the magnum composition depicts the war between Sadashiv Rao (Arjun Kapoor) and Ahmad Shah Abdali (Sanjay Dutt). Kriti Sanon as Parvati Bai is also seen wielding a sword.
Along with Arjun, Kriti and Sanjay, the film stars Mohnish Bahl and Padmini Kolhapure in pivotal roles with Zeenat Aman in a guest appearance. The trailer does remind us of some moments from Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat.
