As per a source in DNA, the role played by Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt in the historic film is out and it’s impressive. As per the source, ‘The film is about The Third Battle of Panipat which was fought between Marathas and Afghans in 1761. Arjun plays the Maratha army’s leader Sadashivrao Bhau, whereas Sanjay will essay the main antagonist — Ahmad Shah Durrani, who led the Afghans to victory.”
Whoa, so with this we can confirm that the two stars will battle it out in the flick.

While that’s just not it, as the source also revealed the role Kriti will be portraying in the film. Going by the said report, “Kriti will essay the role of Sadashivrao’s second wife Parvatibai. While the Maratha warrior marched towards the Afghans at the war, she was a constant support to Sadashivrao. When the Marathas went up North under Sadashivrao’s leadership, Parvatibai was the one who escorted her husband,” it further added.
