Kriti Sanon will be seen in her first period drama in ‘Panipat’, in which she’ll be working with Ashutosh Gowariker for the first time. The actress recently spoke about the experience and her character Parvati Bai.
Talking to Mid-Day, Sanon commented, “Parvati Bai has been shown as a vaidya [physician] in the movie. I am not sure if women were even allowed to work at that time. The women characters in Ashu sir’s films are strong, independent and someone who can voice their opinion. Even here, my character falls in love with Sadashivrao [Arjun Kapoor] and accompanies him to the war”.
Sanon also acknowledged that making a film based in past eras is no easy thing, “We have rarely had references for any of the historical films that have released earlier. So, [the challenge lies in] creating a completely new world and making sure that it looks authentic”.
Sanon will be seen next in ‘Arjun Patiala’ with Diljit Dosanjh.
