Sanjay plays Ahmad Shah Durrani whereas Kriti plays Parvati Bai in Ashutosh Gowariker’s ambitious period piece. The trailer of the film starring Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon in lead roles is expected on Tuesday.

The film is based on the third battle of Panipat, which was fought between the northern expeditionary force of the Maratha Empire and the invading forces of the King of Afghanistan, Durrani.

He had two Indian allies – the Rohilla Afghans of the Doab and Shuja-ud-Daula, the Nawab of Awadh.

The event is significant in modern Indian history as it halted the march of the Maratha empire, eventually leading to the rise of the British in India.

Arjun plays the role of Maratha leader Sadashivrao Bhau.

The period drama, which also features Zeenat Aman, Padmini Kolhapure, Mohnish Bahl, Mantra and Milind Gunaji, is based on the third battle of Panipat that took place in 1761.

“Panipat” is slated to release on December 6.
