Arjun Kapoor might have missed Ashutosh Gowariker's birthday cake but the actor has been actively sharing updates from his preparatory sessions of the film. Arjun, who has been actively training for his role in the film, shared a post on his Instagram profile last week and wrote: "Time to prepare for battle , next schedule of Panipat in Jaipur from tomorrow. Time to get back into the zone."
This is what we are talking about:
As a part of their preparatory sessions, both Kriti Sanon and Arjun Kapoor took horse riding lessons. Take a look at pictures from Kriti and Arjun's horse-riding sessions here:
New year, new learnings... so the last whole month of 2018 went in enjoying the company of an Animal, Mother Nature & Sunrises... as I gear up to restart shooting for Panipat I feel privileged to be able to learn this beautiful art of becoming one with this most glorious animal. The process of learning has been therapeutic & empowering at the same time. Can't wait to get back on set with this new childlike excitement for what is my toughest & biggest film yet. PS - Thank you to my teachers at the Race course for bearing with me along the way... @agppl @kritisanon @duttsanjay #panipatprep #panipat #horsewhisperer #horsingaround #newlearnings #2019 #happynewyear #sadashivraobhau
My morning ride!! #WorkInProgress #PanipatPrep You increase your pace, it feels good, you increase it further, now you're scared, your whole body stiffens, you are not doing it right anymore, you're even more scared, you consciously let go of the fear, you loosen up, you're back on track, THAT feels amazing!!! The trick is to LET GO.. which is the hardest part!
Last year, Panipat director Ashutosh Gowariker shared a motion a poster of the film on Twitter and revealed that the film is based on the historic "Third Battle of Panipat." Mr Gowariker tweeted: "Historical dramas have always fascinated me. This time it is a story about what led to the Third Battle of Panipat."
