Zeenat Aman to play a feisty role of Sakina Begum in Ashutosh Gowariker’s ‘Panipat’ featuring Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon & Sanjay Dutt!
Featuring Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon in pivotal roles, the makers of ‘Panipat’ have been creating a lot of anticipation for the period drama ‘Panipat’. To add more to the excitement of the fans, team ‘Panipat’ will collaborate with the veteran actress Zeenat Aman.
Ashutosh Gowariker has said that he has brought on board the extremely talented Zeenat Aman for an important part in his film.
Zeenat Aman will be seen in a special guest appearance in ‘Panipat‘, where she will essay the feisty character – Sakina Begum. 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.
While speaking about this latest addition to the stellar ensemble cast of the film, Ashutosh excitedly said in a statement, “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.”
Ashutosh further added, “I am excited to reveal her look in the film now but can’t.”
Interestingly, many years ago, Ashutosh had worked with Zeenat Aman as an actor in Anant Balani’s 1989 mystery film – ‘Gawaahi’. The talented actress will begin shooting for Panipat by the end of this week.
The film is based on the third Battle of Panipat, which took place on 14 January 1761 at Panipat. The film is being produced by Sunita Gowariker under their home production banner. The film is scheduled to release on December 6, 2019.
