Reports suggest that Arjun will be seen playing the role of Sadashiv Rao Bhau, who was Peshwa Bajirao’s nephew and had served as the Maratha Army’s commander-in-chief at the third battle of Panipat.
Panipat also stars Sanjay Dutt who was recently seen in Kalank. The film is based on the third Battle of Panipat fought between the Maratha empire lead by Sadashiv Rao Bhau and invading forces of Ahmad Shah Abdali, the King of Afghanistan.
The battle took place on January 14, 1761, at Panipat, and is considered to be one of the most eventful battles fought in the 18th century.
The film’s tagline that reads ‘The Great Betrayal’ rightly sets the tone for the period drama. Helmed by Ashutosh Gowariker, it is slated to release on December 6, 2019.
Arjun will next be seen in Raj Kumar Gupta’s India’s Most Wanted, which is scheduled for release on May 24. He will also appear in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar alongside Parineeti Chopra.
