- Ashutosh Gowariker's new film will have Arjun, Kriti and Sanjay Dutt
- "Looking forward to be a part of this one," tweeted Sanjay Dutt
- The film is based on the third Battle of Panipat
About zeroing in Arjun to co-star with Sanjay Dutt for the movie, Mr Gowariker told IANS: "What impresses me most about Arjun, apart from his fine performances - is his dynamism. He has played double roles twice, and he has portrayed an action hero as well as a lover boy."
The director added that there were no doubts about casting Sanjay Dutt: "I have shared screen space with Sanjay in Naam, which was a memorable co-acting experience and now it will be great to direct such a versatile and immensely talented actor as him."
Mr Gowariker is also pretty "excited" about Kriti Sanon being part of the movie: "I needed someone really beautiful as well as a good performer, and Kriti is both. The eclectic combination of these three is a first for me, and I look forward to this exciting journey with them called Panipat."
Panipat, whose tagline says 'The Great Betrayal', will hit screens on December 6 next year.
