Earlier, director Ashutosh Gowariker confirmed the news of Aman's cameo appearance in Panipat, in an interview to Mumbai Mirror. “Zeenat ji will be seen in a cameo as Sakina Begum, a feisty character leading her province of Hoshiyarganj. Her character lives within the confines of her kingdom, aloof from the politics of the region, till Arjun’s Sadashiv Rao Bhau turns to her for help," he said.
He added he is looking forward to unveil her look in the movie. Interestingly, Ashutosh last worked with Zeenat in the 1989 film Gawaahi.
