This news comes after Ashutosh Gowariker’s historical drama Panipat, which released on 6 December 2019, was made tax-free in Maharashtra. Starring Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles, Panipat re-imagines the Third Battle of Panipat, which was fought between the Maratha Empire and the King of Afghanistan, Ahmad Shah Abdali. There were three battles of Panipat in total, which shaped the Mughal history and rule in the country.
Ever since Deepika Padukone visited New Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNUto express solidarity with the students, who were attacked by an armed, masked mob on Sunday, her latest release Chhapaak has been under the radar. While many dismissed Deepika's visit a publicity stunt, others lauded the actress for taking a stand. The film's makers were also falsely accused he changing Laxmi Agarwal's assailant's name from Nadeem Khan to Rajesh in Chhapaak. Moreover, Laxmi Agarwal's lawyer has filed a plea seeking a stay on the release of the film, "to protect my (her) identity and preserve my (her) integrity."
