Kriti Sanon is excited for the release of her next period drama, Panipat. Helmed by Ashutosh Gowariker, the film also stars Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt in the lead roles. The cast of the movie has left no stone unturned for the promotions of the film. Based on the Third Battle of Panipat, the film has Kriti essaying the role of Parvati Bai. The actress spent a lot of time preparing for her role in the movie.
In a recent interview Kriti said, “I didn’t know Marathi, so I wanted to make sure that whatever little Marathi I was speaking in a Hindi film should be authentic yet effortless. I wanted to sound like I have been speaking the language since childhood, especially for those who know it because they are the ones, who call your bluff. I had a dialect coach and Ashu sir also helped. By the end of it, I started enjoying the language. It’s a very sweet language. It has a rhythm and tune to it, which is very nice.”
Besides her dialect in the movie Kriti also paid keen attention to the body language and posture for her character in the movie. Contrary to the popular belief that people in history were always poised and upright Kriti made a few revelations. She said, “I feel whenever it is a period film, we have this perception that people had a certain poise and elegance in the way they sat, walked or talked. People think they spoke slower than how we do, but if we look at it, it’s coming from previous films we have watched. We don’t know how they behaved. Marathis have a rhythm to their body even when they are talking. I tried to keep it as real as possible and not feel the pressure of doing a period drama.” Panipat hits the big screens tomorrow. So, here’s wishing the lovely lady all the luck for the big day.
