MUMBAI: The pre-filming process for filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker's upcoming historical drama "Panipat" has commenced.
Gowariker is busy scouting locations for filming of the movie, for which he has roped in Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon. It is set for release on December 6, 2019.
The film is based on one of the most epic battles in India's history. It was fought between the northern expeditionary force of the Maratha Empire and the invading forces of the King of Afghanistan, Ahmad Shah Abdali, supported by two Indian allies - the Rohilla Afghans of the Doab and Shuja-ud-Daula, the Nawab of Awadh.
Gowariker's film will be high on action and he is currently in the process of finalising the rest of the cast and crew.
"Panipat" will be produced by Sunita Gowariker under their home banner AGPPL in association with Vision World.
