Kriti Sanon recently wrapped up the shoot for Panipat: The Great Betrayal, a period drama film based on the third battle of Panipat. The movie stars Arjun Kapoor who will be playing the role of Peshwa Sadashiv Rao Bhau while Kriti Sanon will be seen playing his wife, Parvati Bai. Since the movie is based around a portion of Indian History and the Marathas, the actors were required to learn Marathi to a certain extent for this Ashutosh Gowariker directorial.
When a fan asked her about her prep for the film in an exclusive fan’s questions segment with Bollywood Hungama, she said, “Panipat will always be special because Parvati Bai is my first character that was alive at some point in history. That just makes it so special since it is a real character.” She also spoke about how fun it was to work with Arjun Kapoor for the first time and they had a lot of fun on sets. Speaking about learning Marathi, she said, “Since I’m from Delhi and I’m a Punjabi girl, it was really different for me to see myself in a Marathi avatar. For the character, I had to learn a little bit of the language since I was not required to talk much in Marathi, Panipat being a Hindi film. I wanted to make sure that I’m pronouncing the words correctly to add the touch of authenticity and flavour I had to learn certain lingos, and say a few sentences here and there. We had a dialect coach to help us work on our pronunciation.”
