Since it is a sensitive issue a meeting is expected to be held between Tahir Qadiry, Charge d’ Affairs of the Embassy of Afghanistan and I&B ministry of the country.Featuring Arjun Kapoor, Padmini Kolhapure, Kriti Sanon and Mohnish Behl in key roles, Panipat is set to hit the screens on December 6.ByGanesh AaglavePublished: November 8, 2019 5:47 PM IST| Updated: November 8, 2019 9:03 PM IST
