Kriti Sanon is on a roll. Her 2019 release Luka Chuppi has done very well at the box office and also got decent reviews from commentators all around. Her next film Panipat which is being shot in Jaipur is helmed and directed by Lagaan fame Ashutosh Gowariker. Kriti appeared in 'Aira Ghaira' in Karan Johar’s Kalank but what role does she have in Panipat?
“We've shot in ND studios in Karjat and are going to be shooting in Mumbai,” said Kriti in an interview to a news agency. “It's shaping up wonderfully and is truly a magical experience," she said. “This film transports you to a different era. I never thought I would be a part of such a massive film.”
The film is set to release on December 6th and also stars Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt. Kriti was seen playing Rashmi Trivedi in Luka Chuppi which was directed by Laxman Utekar. She appeared opposite Kartik Aaryan and her performance was praised by critics.
December would also see the release of the fantasy fiction trilogy Brahmastra’s first part starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan. Panipat and Brahmastra won’t clash at the box office but might give each other a tough run as they slide by. Brahmastra is directed by Ayan Mukerji who previously directed Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Ashutosh Gowariker’s works include Jodhaa Akbar, Swades and the fairly unsuccessful Mohenjo Daro. Only time will tell if Kriti Sanon and Arjun Kapoor will prove lucky for Gowariker after his recent unsuccessful stints at the box office.
