The film is being called out by Peshwa Baji Rao’s descendant over a dialogue that we hear Kriti Sanon says in the ‘Panipat’ trailer. 

From playing an innocent small-town girl to playing a bubbly, cheerful girl in 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' Kriti Sanon has had quite an interesting run in the Bollywood, but she seems to have found her most "honored" role as Parvati Bai in the upcoming feature `Panipat`.

Raving about her role, the actor on Thursday wrote effusively on Instagram, "Parvati Bai - From being a loving woman to being a strong constant support for her husband through all ups and downs to being a fearless force that would go to every extent to defend her people".

Thanking the man who gave her this opportunity  Ashutosh Gowariker, she went to extend a word of thanks to the film's director writing: "It's been an honor portraying her on the big screen in Panipat! Thank you Ashu sir for this opportunity!". 

The film is being called out by Peshwa Baji Rao’s descendant over a dialogue that we hear Kriti Sanon says in the ‘Panipat’ trailer. He called it “highly objectionable” and has sent notices to the makers of the film. He has also said that if the makers don’t respond then he will approach the court.

The forthcoming war drama dictates the events that lead to the Third Battle of Panipat. It boasts an ensemble cast including Sanjay Dutt as the antagonist Ahmad Shah Abdali, Padmini Kolhapure, Mohnish Bahl, Kunal Kapoor, and Zeenat Aman. The film is slated to hit big screens on December 6.
