Actress Manushi Chhillar looks quite befitting in the role of princess Sanyogita in the teaser of Prithviraj. The film looks full of grandeur and I am looking forward to watching it on the big screen. While it is an experience for us to witness the teaser, I can only imagine the experience the cast would have had while shooting for it. In fact Manushi, Miss World 2017, who is making her acting debut with this one has only been overwhelmed by working on the period drama.

Check out the teaser here:

In a statement, Manushi 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. Her life, her values, her resilience, her courage, her honour is what legends are made of and I’m so fortunate that I got to know so much about her in the process of prepping and portraying Princess Sanyogita on screen. I hope I have done justice to her and what she stood for. I’m excited for everyone to see her story.

Not only this, Manushi is also thankful for the constant support she received from co-star Akshay Kumar.

Talking about the same, she said,

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. I’m extremely positive about Prithviraj and I know that it will entertain audiences worldwide with a story of iconic love, legendary valour, and unflinching courage. I hope I can make my family proud with my work and I’m looking forward to their reaction when they get to see my film.

Yash Raj Films' historical drama stars Akshay Kumar in the titular role. Other than that, Sanjay Dutt and Sonu Sood are also part of the film. The Chandraprakash Dwivedi directorial is based on the life and valour of the fearless and mighty Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan. Akshay will be essaying the role of the legendary warrior who fought valiantly against the merciless invader Muhammad of Ghor. The film releases worldwide on 21st January, 2022.

I must say, with the teaser being so spectacular, I am waiting to see how the trailer stuns me.
