On the continuing controversy

I feel individuals want to observe the movie. Solely after watching the movie they may get the solutions to their curiosity or aggression. The movie has been made with utmost honesty.

On making a movie on the third battle of ‘Panipat’

I began studying concerning the third battle of Panipat five-six years in the past and realized that it was an inspiring story. The story is a couple of Maratha warrior Sadashiv Rao Bhau, who led the battle to cease the assault of Abdali. This matter hasn’t been touched up in our historical past textbooks and I really feel at present’s youth have to know and perceive the significance of the sacrifices these Maratha warriors made in 1761. We’ve not proven curiosity within the third battle of Panipat as Marathas misplaced the battle.

On the hanging comparisons with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’

Individuals have the tendency to match movies which might be of the identical style, be it comedy, romantic or historic interval drama. We now have proven a interval in Panipat that’s 20 years after ‘Bajirao Mastani’, there’s a time hole, Sadashivrao Bhau belonged to the subsequent technology, after Peshwa Bajirao, so their costumes, custom, requirements of dwelling, residences had been the identical. This is not the primary time my movies are being in contrast after I made ‘Jodhaa Akbar’, individuals in contrast it with ‘Mughal-e-Azam’, Hrithik (Roshan) was in comparison with Prithviraj Kapoor ji. We had been prepared for the comparisons. At the very least, our movie is being in contrast with top-of-the-line movies within the historic drama style.

Ashutosh Gowariker’s Panipat is slated to hit the screens on December 6.
