Arjun Kapoor is gearing up for the release of his first-ever historical saga, Panipat that also stars Sanjay Dutt and Kriti Sanon. This Ashutosh Rana directorial will revolve around the third battle of Panipat that was fought between the Maratha and the Durani Empire in 1761. Arjun plays Sadashiv Rao Bhau who was the Sardar Senapati of the Maratha army during the battle. He was Bajirao's nephew and actor Sahil Salathia will play his cousin in this historical drama.
