Panipat featuring Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles has been leaked online by the infamous Tamilrockers. The film which hit the screens on 6 December, 2019 was leaked online in full HD quality.
Earlier, films like Housefull 4, Bala, Kabir Singh, Gully Boy, 2.0, Petta, Uri: The Surgical Strike, Manikarnika, Accidental Prime Minister and more also became the victim of piracy. This piracy website has been banned innumerable times. But, every time a new movie is leaked online, they come out with a different proxy server.
The film opened to decent response at the box-office by the critics as well as the audience. In the film, Arjun is seen playing the role of Sadashiv Rao Bhau, Kriti Sanon is portraying the role of his wife Parvati Bai. Sanjay Dutt, on the other hand, plays Afghan ruler Ahmad Shah Abdali.
Talking about the film, Arjun told PTI, "Ashu sir has done a good job in making sure everything is correct. He puts his actors in the forefront. He is a terrific filmmaker, very detailed and nuanced. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him. It is a very special film.''
In another interview, Kriti said, ''It is a great story that needs to be told. I like the character of Parvati Bai, especially the way Ashu sir has written it. It did attract me as I have never done something like this before. I was initially confused like how come he thought of me to play this Marathi girl because I am a North Indian, Punjabi.''
"I was a little surprised. But I did not want to let go of the opportunity to do a period film with a director, who is a legend in that space. It is very different from what I have done and so it becomes exciting and challenging at the same time. That is how you break certain barriers," she added.
Apart from Sanjay, Arjun, and Kriti, Panipat also stars Padmini, Zeenat, Mohnish Bahl, Mir Sarwar, Nawab Shah and Kunal Kapoor in lead roles. The film is based on third battle of Panipat.
