The trailer of the much-anticipated film Prithviraj was released on Monday, May 9. The historical epic war action drama film marks the debut of Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar who will be seen in the role of Princess Sanyogita.
During the Prithviraj trailer launch event on May 9, the lead actor Akshay Kumar was asked by a reporter about Samrat Prithviraj’s birthplace. She asked, “Where was Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan from- Gujarat or Rajasthan?”
To everybody’s surprise, the actor retorted to the question and gave a savage reply saying, “I think Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan was from Hindustan. He was from Hindustan, and I will only say that these things don’t matter, he was from Hindustan no matter where he lived, he was the son of Bharat Mata and that is more important than anything. After seeing Britishers divide and rule on us, at least now, we should now understand. Let’s leave the question about where he was from, how he was, the most important thing is that he was from our country and that is enough”.
The audience clapped after Akshay Kumar’s befitting reply.
Prithviraj will be released in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu on June 3 worldwide. Produced by Yash Raj Films, Prithviraj is being directed by Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi who directed the biggest television epic Chanakya, based on the life and times of the most influential political strategist of India and the multiple award-winning Pinjar.
