Ashutosh Gowariker’s next ‘Panipat’ has just got more interesting, with a stellar cast boosted by veteran actress Zeenat Aman.
Gowariker confirmed that Aman will play a special guest appearance in the film, a feisty character, Sakina Begum. Mid-Day reports that Sakina led the province of Hoshiyarganj and lived within the confines of her kingdom, away from the politics of the region. She played an important part in the battle of Panipat when the Peshwas turned to her for help.
Talking about signing Aman for the film, Gowariker said, “It is an absolute honour and a fan moment to be directing Zeenatji. There are many many of her films that I have loved and especially her work in them. What is most fascinating about her, is her humility despite all the stardom.
He added, “I am excited to reveal her look in the film now but can’t.”
‘Panipat’ also stars Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon. It releases on 6th December 2019.
