“Panipat” Meets A Bitter Pill In Rajasthan That Makes Protestors Burn Ashutosh Gowariker’s Picture

Predicted to create a historical hit in December, however, “Panipat” has been facing a big hiccup in Rajasthan when delivering the wrong Maharaja Surajmal’s portrayal in the movie.

Hitting the theatres on December 6th, Ashutosh Gowariker’s directorial Panipat has received a lot of positive reviews for its storyline. But prior to going on floors, Arjun Kapoor starrer film was the eye of the storm. At that time, the film crashed into the controversy around its copyright when Vishwas Patil, a Marathi novel best-seller, asked the filmmakers about violating the copyright policy.

Another time Panipat had to deal with a big problem was when the protestors in Bharatpur, Rajasthan turned their backs to the movie. According to a report, the locals here showed that they are disappointed with the makers of the film for signing Maharaja Surajmal’s portrayal in the wrong way.

As the Maratha empire is endangered because of the fierce invasion of Afghan, Sadashiv Rao Bhau (played by Arjun Kapoor) needs support from Maharaja Surajmal so as for the protection of his empire. Then the movie performs that Maharaja Surajmal requested to be requited and when such things were buried under implementation, he blew his help off Sadashiv Rao Bhau’s demand for the battlefield.

Another detail got trouble for Panipat is that in the film, the locals speak Haryanvi and Rajasthani instead of the fact that they speak Braj language. With these wrong performances heading back to the reality, protestors in Rajasthan became angry that they burn the director’s effigies.

Panipat is based on the third battlefield of Panipat between the Afghans with Ahmad Shah Abdali as the leader and the Marathas. Apart from the main roles essayed by Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, and Kriti Sanon, the much-awaited movie also features Zeenat Aman, Mohnish Bahl, Padmini Kolhapure, Nawab Shah and some more actors.
