The movie stars Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Kriti Sanon, Padmini Kolhapuri, Zeenat Aman in the lead roles. The casting of Arjun Kapoor in the multi-starrer film Panipat is surprising the people.
Watching a film on Panipat based on historical battle is a fun concept for today’s audience. But there is disappointment in the audience since the film’s trailer came out. Main lead Arjun Kapoor is not fitting in the role of Sadashiv Rao Bhau. Casting of lead actors is very important for the success of any film. In such a situation, taking Arjun in the movie already flop can prove to be risky for the makers. Know how can Arjun impact Panipat’s business?
# Arjun’s flop career
Arjun Kapoor’s career graph has been like a roller coaster ride since his hit debut . In his 8-year career, he has had very few films. Back to back 6 films of Arjun Kapoor have done bad business. In such a situation, casting Arjun in the strong character of Sadashiv Rao Bhau may be overwhelming to the makers.
# Arjun Kapoor’s debut in period films
Panipat is Arjun Kapoor’s first period film. Never before has he been seen in the role of a warrior. In many scenes of the trailer, he was seen trying to copy Ranveer Singh. It would not be wrong to say that Ashutosh has played a big bet on Arjun in his most awaited project Panipat.
# Arjun Kapoor’s poor acting
Fans eagerly waiting for Panipat were very disappointed to see the trailer. Special buzz has not been made on social media about this film. No character other than Sanjay Dutt is shown in the trailer.
# Arjun Kapoor’s loss due to falling star power
Arjun Kapoor’s star power has also had an impact on the films that are constantly flopping . When their films release and go away, many do not even know. Arjun’s falling starpower is likely to have an impact on Panipat’s business.
# Ashutosh’s direction can save Panipat
Husband wife and she is releasing at the opposite box office of Panipat . Kartik Aryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Pandey’s film is getting more craze. Word of mouth will affect the business of both films. Panipat can benefit from Ashutosh Gowariker’s direction and powerful concept.
