Interestingly, Arjun Kapoor starrer Panipat is also going to be released on the same date this year. So, this is going to be a clash between Arjun Kapoor and his Chachu Anil Kapoor at the box office this December.
Arjun Kapoor’s Panipat happens to be a period drama which is directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar of Jodha Akbar fame. Panipat also stars Kriti Sanon, Padmini Kolhapure and Sanjay Dutt in the lead roles.
