Ashutosh Gowariker is making what he is known for best – a historical. His next, stars Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt and based on the third battle of Panipat, which ended up in victory of Durrani Empire. It was a long-drawn battle lasting over months and is considered one of the largest and most eventful fought in the 18th century.

Buzz is that Arjun plays Sadashiv Rao Bhau (also known as Bhausaheb), who served as the Sardar Senapati (Commander-in-Chief) of the Maratha army at the third battle of Panipat against the Afghan army while Sanjay Dutt will play Ahmad Shah Abdali (also known as Ahmad Shah Durrani, the founder of the Durrani Empire and the modern state of Afghanistan) who fought against Bhausaheb.

Says a trade source, “There are many powerful characters in Ashutosh’s film besides Sadashiv Rao Bhau. It is believed that the death of Vishwas Rao, the eldest son of Balaji Baji Rao, Peshwa of Pune (the prime minister and de facto ruler/administrator) and also the heir to the title of Peshwa of Maratha Empire, was a turning point in the third battle of Panipat and brought about victory for the Afghans. Ashutosh has done his research already in the last one year but is keeping the project under wraps as he wants to announce it in a big way. As Sanj plays Abdali, his role is very powerful and brave. He is a warrior and also a poet.”

Vishwas Rao was the nominal Commander of Maratha Forces and the Peshwa’s representative during Third Battle of Panipat under guidance of his uncle Sadashivrao Bhau. There will also be a personal angle shown in the film – Sadashivrao Bhau’s second wife Parvatibai. When the Marathas’s under Sadashivrao went to North India she escorted her husband, performed pilgrimage at Mathura and Vrindavan with other women folks in Maratha camp and was present in the final battle fought on January 14, 1761. Sadadhiv Rao Bhau was the son of Chimaji Appa and Rakhmabai and the nephew of Peshwa Bajirao I.

Interestingly, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has made Bajirao Mastani based on the life of Peshwa Bajirao I (played by Ranveer Singh) and his two wives Kashibai and Mastani (played by Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone). Despite numerous attempts to reach him Ashutosh Gowariker remained unavailable for comment. The Third Battle Of Panipat In January 1760, Ahmad Shah Durrānī invaded and captured the Punjab region. Nanasaheb Peshwa chose Sadashivrao Bhau to lead the Maratha army to Delhi.

On March 14, 1760, an army was gathered and started its northward journey from Patdur, accompanied by non-combatants including family members and a large number of pilgrims as they felt safe in the presence of the army.

The Maratha forces of Holkar and Scindia joined the army on the way but while Bhau and his loyal bodyguards fought bravely to the end, various factors lead to the defeat of the Maratha army in the third Battle of Panipat, which took place at about a 100 km from Delhi.

Yet another bollywood movie depicting a Rajput military defeat. Did Baahubali (and its celebration of Kshatriya-dharma) damage bollywood's social-engineering project this much? Is baniyawood really this butthurt?
it's a maratha military defeat for a change .

They are going to portray the " Foreigners " as Evil just as they did in Padmavati

The Biggest grouse against Padmavati was by Muslims who said that it portrays Muslims as evil

Secondly let the present generation also see the effects of disunity and internal rivalries

By the way I have read that Indian Army generals in 1965 were
relying on defensive techniques primarily because Panipat weighed heavily on their minds

I have very little faith in Gowarikar. His last good film was Swades and that was 14 years ago.

@tarunraju There is a lesson in the defeat so I don't mind but I do mind the clownish portrayal.

What I do find amusing is that illegitimate children of invaders get upset that invaders are portrayed as animals who slaughtered innocents and not the kind and gentle liberators Muslims think they were.

there are many movies that are coming on sikhs.

Buddy IS Baahubali bollywood movie? .. NO, a Tollywood or Telugu movie.

Same as above that is Punjabi movie.

Dubai/paki funded and nurtured Brothelwood only glorify jihadis. Unless we get rid-off Jihadi Akhtar and khan's brothelwood remain as an anti-Indian film industry.

Who cut the bloody Afghan land to half 'The Sikhs' ... IS there any movie on Sikh warriors??
No, always muzzie glorification.... Brothelwood. :frusty:
Time to make movies on himalayan kingdoms who rather invaded and challenged the Mughals or turks and this is the reason why most of north east remains cut off. Punjabi are known to have soft corner for muslims and pakis.

The himalyan kingdoms never allow the scums to invade rather were known to snatch and invade their territory.

Bollywood is basically a Jihadi PR Machine. It is they who have made Love Jihad a cool thing nowadays for dumb girls. This movie like Padmavati is going to be another PR glorifying Abdali and the demonic practices such as polygamy, sexual slavery etc, And hence justify Islam and Jihad.

The timing is also interesting 2019 is going to be a Panipat in modern era and will in many ways decide the future course this country will take. This movie will help ignite the spirit of Jihad among Muslims to overthrow the march of Dharmic forces.

Also the important thing this time is that the Chinese are helping this PR Machine which had taken some losses due to crack down on Bhai(Dawood)'s network in Dubai and Gulf. Just note the movies approved by Chinese and how much they are earning, billions are coming in for PR industry and they have now also almost hijacked Television networks.

it were basically gurkhas and dogras and kumaonis and garhwalis , ladhakis, nagas , i would also include jaats of rajasthan very ill equipped, without gloves, and proper ammo who gave their supreme sacrifice at 18000ft .. preventing 100000 chinese from invading and loot the motherland. And the locals of the region who assisted them.

har baar sikh punjabi ko hi glamour karo baki sab. Although their sacrifice is also accounted.

There is already a bollywood version of the Panipat battle. It was part of The Great Maratha tv serial. This version would probably follow a similar approach.

i would rather prefer that they make movies on some remarkable Maratha victories like Salher, Vasai, Bhopal etc than on Panipat. But it's Bollywood so they would make even victorious battles look bad.
