Arjun Kapoor has plunged into the preparation for his period drama ‘Panipat’. After shaving his hair, the actor has indulged in extensive horse riding sessions for the film. “As I gear up to restart shooting for ‘Panipat’, I feel privileged to be able to learn this beautiful art of becoming one with this most glorious animal. The process of learning has been therapeutic and empowering at the same time,” quips Arjun. The ‘Mubarakan’ star has been practicing the sport at Mumbai’s Mahalaxmi Race Course. Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, ‘Panipat’ is based on the Third Battle of Panipat of the 18th century and will also feature Sanjay Dutt in a pivotal role.
