Prithviraj, Yash Raj Films’ first historical, stars actor Akshay Kumar and is based on the life and heroism of the fearless and mighty King Prithviraj Chauhan. Manushi Chillar co-stars with him and makes her film debut. The two recently attended the premiere of the film’s trailer, which has received a lot of positive feedback since its debut on Monday.

At the event, Akshay shared, “I want to say that in my 30 years of career, I am doing such a big historical for the first time. It’s a matter of pride for me that I was offered this film.”

He also added that he was given the book Prithviraj Raso by the director Chandraprakash Dwivedi. He added that as he got deep in the text, he started understanding the ruler. “I really want the world to know about this warrior. I want every child, not just in India but in the world to watch the film. It is an educational film. You would want to show your kids what Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan’s story was. I am extremely proud to work in the film.” 

Prithviraj has been directed by Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi, who is best known for directing the television epic Chanakya and the critically acclaimed film Pinjar. The ethereally gorgeous Manushi’s launch is definitely one of the most awaited debuts of 2022. The film is set to release on June 3 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
