Arjun Kapoor will soon be seen in his first periodic drama titled Panipat: The Great Betrayal. The movie also stars Kriti Sanon, Sanjay Dutt, in lead roles and has been directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar. Ever since the trailer of the movie was dropped, people have been waiting to watch how this story is being told on celluloid, however, a certain section posted innumerable memes on Sadashivrao, played by Arjun and even made several comparison posts. 

In an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, Arjun opened up on trolls and said that he is all in for trolls but it must not hurt the sentiments of other people. He is all good when people troll him but when it is the character getting trolled, he finds it a bit OTT. He said, "I love memes. I am the first person who laughs at myself. I have done a roast, so one can imagine what I can do when it comes to being easy on yourself. My only thing is that when everyone wants to be sensitive about certain things that we have represented, nobody is being sensitive about the part that we are talking about martyrs who have laid their lives for the country." He continued, "I haven't seen anyone make a meme on Subhash Chandra Bose or Shahid Bhagat Singh. But memes are being created on SadashivRao is being made and no one is saying anything. That means it is a business of convenience for them. You make fun of Arjun Kapoor, I am okay with it because that happens to be best of us. Even Virat Kohli gets trolled despite consistency. I can take it. So, I want to give them a jadoo ki jhappi to them."

Kriti added to it saying that trolls are the best form of gauging the buzz for any movie today. Panipat releases on December 6, 2019.

I think people understand that the movie is about a strong warrior and are hence questioning the casting. No one said anything when he was doing dumb films like half girlfriend. People are speaking up because they care about the warriors.

Let’s give this guy a break. He has been the target of personal and professional trolls for so many years. It is time to let him leave to his life and work. He is right. The character he is portraying is beyond life and that martyr shouldn’t be trolled. People who do this should be ashamed of their behavior.
