Ashutosh Gowariker is back with a bang as he gears up for his next after Mohenjo Daro which was unable to deliver at the box-office. Titled Panipat, the movie is based on the third battle of Panipat and is a high-octane action film.

The movie stars Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon in the lead and the magnum opus will be going on floors in mid-2018.

Talking about working with Sanjay, Ashutosh told a leading tabloid, “I shared screen space with Sanjay in Naam (1986), which was a memorable co-acting experience. It will be great to direct such a versatile and talented actor.”

About Arjun, Ashutosh continued, “What impresses me most about Arjun, apart from his fine performances, is his dynamism. He had played double roles twice (Aurangzeb, 2013 and Mubarakan 2017), and has portrayed an action hero as well as a lover boy.”

When it comes to the female lead Kriti, Ashutosh added, “I needed someone who is beautiful and a good performer. The eclectic combination of these three is a first for me, and I look forward to this exciting journey with them.”
