Kriti Sanon has received unanimous praises for her performance in the Ashutosh Gowariker directorial “Panipat”, which hit the marquee on 6th December, 2019.

Kriti Sanon has received great praises for her powerful performance in Ashutosh Gowariker’s latest film Panipat (2019), based on the third battle of Panipat fought between the Marathas and Afghan invader Abdul Shah Abdali on 14th January, 1761. The period drama hit the marquee on 6th December 2019 and has been receiving good response from the audience.

However, there is a section of the audience that feels the movie could have been trimmed better to make it more palatable to the younger lot. But Kriti Sanon is of the opinion that it was nearly impossible for the team of Panipat to trim down the length of the film and when one deals with history, it is difficult to cut a lot of events.


Panipat boasts of a runtime of almost three hours which is too long keeping in mind the fact that most of the films these days wrap up within two or two and a half hours. When Kriti Sanon was asked about the criticism which has been there regarding to the length of Panipat, the actress told media that it is difficult to not show important aspects in a historical. In a war drama like Panipat, where there are multiple characters, it takes time to establish characters and happenings.

The actress went on to add that shortening the length of a period love story is comparatively easier as it primarily revolves around just those characters. She said that the pace in historical, period films is always slow in the beginning, unless it is a love story, which is easier with just a few characters and life revolving around them. Defending Panipat, Sanon said that she does not think there was anything which the team could have let go, which was not important or relevant to the times.
