In an interview to a leading daily when Arjun was asked about his working with Sanjay Dutt in Panipat, he had something interesting to share. Here’s How Arjun Kapoor Transformed into the Role of Maratha Warrior Sadashiv Rao Bhau for Panipat (Watch Video).
Arjun Kapoor told BT, “The thought of facing Sanjay Dutt in the film was intimidating. I was nervous and excited. Sanju sir disarms you with his charm and normalcy. He has a larger-than-life personality, but he is a chilled-out guy. He is a man and a child at the same time. We spoke about so many things during the shoot. He called me home once to have a meal and told me he was happy that I was doing action films. Both Sanju sir and I lost our mothers before the release of our first film. Tragedy connects you in a unique way. We never spoke about it, but I have seen his biopic, Sanju, and I cried while watching it. When "Kar Har Maidaan Fateh" was playing, I realised that I am not the only one in this world who has had to deal with things. There is someone who has gone through worse.” Panipat Song Sapna Hai Sach Hai: Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon Look Too Good in This Traditional Maharashtrian Wedding Track (Watch Video).
