The freshly released teaser of Yash Raj Films’ first historical epic action drama ‘Prithviraj’ has grabbed eyeballs.
The film based on the life and valour of the fearless and mighty Rajput king Prithviraj Chauhan stars Akshay Kumar in the titular role alongside Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar as Princess Sanyogita. The actress is over the moon as she gears up for her debut with one of India’s premier studios.
The debutante expressed her gratitude as she said, “I’m eternally grateful to YRF and my director Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi for not only believing in me but also for making me believe that I could play the role of the legendary princess Sanyogita. I couldn’t have asked for a bigger debut and I’m deeply honoured that I could play her on screen.”
“I have given my heart, soul and tears to this film and I hope that people will like my effort in playing such an iconic real-life legend on the big screen. I’m immensely grateful that I had Akshay sir as a pillar of support to me all through the shoot. His work ethic, his dedication to the craft is an inspiration to me,” she adds.
Produced by Yash Raj Films, ‘Prithviraj’ tells the story of the legendary warrior, who fought valiantly against the merciless invader Muhammad of Ghor. The film directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi also stars Sanjay Dutt and Sonu Sood and will be released worldwide on January 21, 2022.
