Real jewellery used for the making of the Bollywood News – Bollywood Hungama

Bollywood and TV Serials

After Jodhaa Akbar, director Ashutosh Gowariker has
once again used real gold and diamond
jewellery for his magnum opus Panipat.  The jewellery from the
Mughal and Peshwa era has always been a favourite, hence the
makers decided that they wanted the best jewellers to handcraft
for them. Since director Ashutosh Gowarikar was making a film
on the 18th century, he did not want the jewellery to look
fake.  He made sure that everything during that era
should be genuine and look real.  Hence he decided to use
real jewellery for the movie.

The jewellery used is so atypically Maharashtrian that was used
by the Peshwa women during that era. The collection was
designed by P.N. Gadgil Jewellers. Each piece was unique and
carefully handcrafted according to the era.  P. N. Gadgil
was happy to be a part of the project. Around 2800 pieces of
jewellery were used for the entire movie of
Panipat.  A lot of research went into the making
of the jewellery. They looked into the miniature paintings that
were available at the museums and also went through research
and descriptions from historians who have written about
them.  Gems like rubies, emeralds, pearls, and uncut
diamonds were used to imbue colour and add dazzle to the
historic epic.

There was so much security on the sets that a special team was
hired to hand over and also collect each piece of jewellery to
be kept back in the lockers after the shoot.  The special
team handed over the jewellery during the shoots in the
morning.  There was tight security on the sets and cameras
were installed so that no piece of jewellery was misplaced
during the shoots.

Ashutosh says “I have grown up seeing most of the jewellery in
the house as well as all our Maharashtrian weddings and
festivals.  This was the first time I got the opportunity
to showcase it on the screen.  So be it the Nath Thushi,
Mohan Mala, Laxmi Haar, Kolhapur Saaz, Ambada Pin, Kaan (ear
cuff) – these were the ones I knew about.  I discovered
many more during the prep of the film like Choker Moti Haar,
Rani Haar (long Pearl necklace), Bugadi, Chinch Peti, Chapla
Haar, Tanmani, Bakuli Haar – each one better than the other. At
first, I was worried as to how we were going to manufacture or
acquire all of these. That was when I thought of the oldest and
most authentic jewellery house – P. N. Gadgil Jewellers. I was
most relieved when they consented to come on board. Despite
having all the knowledge, they did additional research and
manufactured the entire Panipat range right for all
the characters and brought alive the beauty of the women and
the men of that era through this jewellery”.

Great detailing has been added through the jewellery of both
the Mughal and the Peshwa era that it brings alive the beauty
of the women and the men of that era through this jewellery.

Produced by Sunita Gowariker and  Rohit Shelatkar the
film is directed by Ashutosh Gowariker and stars Arjun
Kapoor, Sanjay
Dutt and Kriti
Sanon in the lead. The movie is scheduled for release on
6th December 2019.
