 A debate has arisen in Afghanistan about a film to be released in India next month.
People are getting divided reactions in Afghan social media regarding the poster and trailer of 'Panipat'.

Releasing on 6 December, the film has actor Sanjay Dutt playing the role of Ahmed Shah Abdali, founder of Durrani Empire.

It shows the events during the historic battle of Panipat between the loyalist armies of Abdali and the Maratha armies of India in 1761.

Some Facebook and Twitter users in Afghanistan have warned Indian filmmakers and the administration not to portray Abdali's character negatively. Actually Abdali is called 'Ahmed Shah Baba' with Afghan honor.
