We had earlier reported about that Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt's historical saga, Panipat has begun its principal photography. The movie is directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, known for his large-scale period dramas like Oscar-nominated Lagaan, Jodha Akbar and Mohenjo Daro. Panipat is based on the third battle of Panipat that was fought between Maratha chief Sadashiv Rao Bhau and Afghani invader Ahmad Shah Abdali. Arjun Kapoor, in his first historical movie, will be taking on the role of Bhau, while Dutt is playing Abdali.

Interestingly, both the actors have gone bald to get the look of their characters. But we got a glimpse of that when Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt attended the wedding reception of Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. We had already known of the fact that Arjun would be going bald by the fact that he was hiding his head with a cap in the past few days. However, that was not the only thing he was hiding, as Arjun revealed at the reception that he is also sporting a nice moustache, as he covered his head again with a hat.

Sanjay Dutt is not a newbie to go bald, having done so when he played an antagonist in Agneepath. So he had no qualms to show off his bald pate again on the red carpet. But then when do we know Dutt of hiding stuff? Okay, that was a pun unintended.
Talking more about the movie, Panipat will also have Kriti Sanon as the female lead, playing Bhau's wife Parvati Bai. Veteran actress Padmini Kolhapure (Shraddha Kapoor's aunt, for the millennials' sake) is also returning to the big screen with Panipat, playing Gopika Bai. Panipat is all set to release on December 6, 2019.
