One after the other, the makers of Panipat are unveiling the characters from the film making the buzz around the film go sky high. After Ahmad Shah Abdali, Parvati Bai, Sadashiv Rao Bhau, Gopika Bai, Sakina Begum, Shamsher Bahadur and Nana Saheb Peshwa, we get introduced to another prime character in the Third Battle of Panipat, known as Shuja Ud Daula essayed by Kunal R Kapoor in the film.

Shuja Ud Daula was the Grand Vizier of the Mughal Empire during the Third Battle of Panipat. He was also the Nawab of Awadh, and a loyal ally of Shah Alam II throughout his lifetime. Shuja-ud-Daula despised the Marathas after the Battle of Sikandarabad. He could have been the strongest ally to the Marathas in the Third Battle of Panipat but instead, he chose to side with the Afghani army cutting off the supplies of the Marathas with the help of a sizeable army of Mughal troopers and also dispatched the Maratha leader Sadashiv Rao Bhau. Check out the poster:

Just a while ago, Kriti Sanon and Arjun Kapoor took to Instagram in order to unveil Kunal R Kapoor as Shuja Ud Daula and hinted about the turned tables caused by his character in the battlefield. The film is all set to hit the cinemas on December 6 and we can't wait to see the history recreate on the screen.
