The actress also shared about her love for period drama films. Kriti Sanon liked "Jodhaa Akbar" due to Jodha's character in the film.

Kriti Sanon is super excited about her upcoming film Panipat. The actress will play role of Parvati Bai, wife of Maratha warrior Sadashiv Rao. Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, the film features Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Zeenat Aman, Padmini Kolhapure and Suhasini Mulay. The film will be released on December 6. Talking about the role, Kriti Sanon during an interview revealed that Gowariker always wanted to portray strength of a woman.

Talking about the role Kriti Sanon said, "Ashu sir, I feel, is someone who cannot see his women weak. He has this thing. I think it comes from the fact that he has a very strong woman with him, Sunita. I am so glad because even though his films are period, his characters are very contemporary. He has made Parvati Bai as someone who fights, who can protect her women and her people if the need be. Giving that power to her, giving that stature to her is very empowering. When you get to play such a character, you just feel proud."

She further said, "I tried googling Parvati Bai. There is nothing on Internet about her except where she was born, she travelled with them and how she died. I think a lot of it in the film comes from Ashu sir. My history book was Ashu sir. I think he is better than any history book! He is so well-read and he knows every small detail of what has happened -- not only about this war, but in general."

Talking about her love for period drama, Kriti said, "I love Lagaan and Swades. If you ask about historical films, then it has to be Jodhaa Akbar. I enjoyed watching it. Jodhaa's character is very strong in the film. She has a voice and is very strongheaded. One of my favourite scenes is the sword-fighting scene featuring Akbar (Hrithik Roshan) and Jodhaa (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan). That's an iconic scene -- I want to do a scene like that one. I realise Ashu sir has immense respect for women, and sees them as strongheaded people who can take a step equal to a man."
