Baahubali series has set a benchmark for Indian films, in terms of execution, promotional strategy and vision. The movie has become a cult in Japan too.



With such huge success, many producers and directors are aiming to make films on the same scale to mesmerise the audience.

Ashutosh Gowarikar, who is known for his penchant to make historical fiction dramas, decided to take up another historical fiction.

He made Lagaan, Jodha Akbar, Khele Hum Jee Jaan Se and Mohenjo-Daro till now based on history, adding his own fictitious elements to the story.

Even though his Mohenjo-Daro turned out to be a flop, as the director of Lagaan, Jodha Akbar, he still has huge respect and hence, he got this offer to make movie on Panipat battle.

This movie is based on Third battle of Panipat and Sanjay Dutt is playing the main lead with Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon.

The movie shoot will begin in second half of 2018 and a release date of 6th December 2019, is already announced by makers.

Many Industries are planning different films to repeat the success of Baahubali, Padamaavat failed to do so but emerged successful with a Nett collection of 280 crores. Let's see what this historical drama will do in late 2019.
