Ashutosh Gowariker is back with another period drama, Panipat. The movie seems to be getting a good response from the audience. Starring Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Kriti Sanon in leading roles, Panipat recounts the incidents that led to the third battle of Panipat and how the Marathas fought against Afghan forces. It tells the brave story of a few men who fight against the tide for the pride of the empire. The audience has always loved such opulent dramas.
While the public is attentive to this movie, it has not been able to translate to numbers at the box office. Due to the tough competition of Pati Patni Aur Woh, Panipat started with Rs. 4.12 million rupees on Friday and added only Rs. Rs 5.78 million on Saturday. With Rs. Rs 9.90 million already in her kitten, the film will have to buckle up next week, especially in multiplexes.
