The film is based on the third battle Panipat and Gowariker will be working with Arjun and Kriti for the first time while having worked with Sanjay in Naam (1986). In history, there have been three battles of Panipat each leading to a significant change in Indian history, from dynasty to dynasty.
The third war of Panipat was fought between the Afghani invaders Ahmed Shah Abdali and the patron of the Mughal emperor Shah Alam II and the Marathas. In this fight, Maratha Senapati Sadashivrao Bhave was defeated by the Afghan commander, Abdali, in the battle crusades.
Panipat is expected to release on December 6, 2019.
