One of the most talked about period films of this year is Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon starrer Panipat. Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, the film is a magnum opus based on the 3rd battle of Panipat between Sadashiv Rao Bhau and Ahmed Shah Abdali. Interestingly, Sadashiv was Bajirao’s nephew and the character was played by Ranveer Singh in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Bajirao Mastani. So, when Panipat trailer was released, Arjun’s Sadashiv was compared to Ranveer’s Bajirao. Now, in a chat, Arjun shared whether he looked to Ranveer for help for Sadashiv’s role. 

In an interview with Mid-Day, Arjun was quizzed about exchanging notes with BFF Ranveer for playing Bajirao’s nephew on the big screen. Arjun cleared the air around it and mentioned that though Ashutosh Gowariker and Sanjay Leela Bhansali make epic films, they have different temperaments. Hence, Arjun followed his director’s temperament. Arjun mentioned that Ranveer would have shared his viewpoint of the character which would be based on what he learnt from Sanjay Leela Bhansali during the filming of Bajirao Mastani. Hence, here Arjun stated that help wasn’t needed.

The Panipat actor mentioned that both Sadashiv and Bajirao were from different eras. Arjun said, “Ashu Sir and Sanjay Sir make magnum opuses, but they have different temperaments. Here, I respected my director’s temperament. I wanted to remain loyal to my story. Ranveer would have given me his point of view which would be from Sanjay sir’s understanding. I have tremendous respect for Ranveer’s work. But this film didn’t require me to seek help as Bajirao and Sadashiv are from different eras.”

Meanwhile, Arjun and Kriti jetted off to New Delhi for the promotions of Panipat. Directed by Ashutosh, the film also stars Sanjay Dutt who will be seen as Ahmed Shah Abdali in the film. Apart from them, Panipat stars Zeenat Aman, Padmini Kolhapure, Mohnish Bahl in pivotal roles.
