Arjun Kapoor has gone bald to authentically portray a Peshwa warrior on the silver screen in the film ‘Panipat’. The actor has not just gotten rid of his hair but is also sporting a clean-shaven look for the film. In a bid to hide his new look, Arjun stepped out with his face covered in a black mask and red hoodie, as he left from director Ashutosh Gowariker’s Khar office. Arjun has been cast as Peshwa Sadashiv Rao Bhau with Kriti Sanon playing his second wife Parvati Bai. The film will be based on the historical Third Battle of Panipat and a set of the iconic Shanivar Wada has been erected at a studio in Karjat where the team is gearing up to begin the shoot soon. Arjun has a busy year ahead with as many as three movies, ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’, ‘Panipat’ and ‘Most Wanted’.

Back in December 2017, Celebs & Cinema had informed dear readers that Ashutosh Gowariker was contemplating a film with Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt. While Arjun was tipped to play the hero, Sanjay Dutt would play the villain in ‘Panipat’, the film which was not titled till then. The Third Battle of Panipat was fought in 1761 with the Maratha army facing defeat from Ahmad Shah Durrani and his troupe. The said war is considered as one of the most eventful battles of the 18th century till date. Since Arjun would be playing the Peshwa, also known as Maratha warrior, Sanju will don the avatar of Ahmad Shah Durrani in this Bollywood film. And with a director like Ashutosh Gowariker calling the shots for a historical film, the stakes would be high.
