Prithviraj is considered one of the bravest rulers of the Chahamana dynasty, who fought against the huge Ghurid army when they tried to invade the country in 1192 CE.
While speaking about this historical piece, Akshay said: “It is truly an honour that I will be playing the role of one of the most fearless and courageous kings of India, Prithviraj Chauhan. As a nation, we should always celebrate our heroes and immortalize what they did to propagate the values that Indians lived by. Prithviraj is our attempt to bring to light his valour and daredevilry. Prithviraj was the only person standing in front of a merciless nemesis and the bravery he showed, made him a true Indian hero, an inspiration for generations and a legend. So this announcement coming on my birthday has indeed made it more special for me.”
This year, Kesari and Mangal were the two Kumar movies to hit the cinemas which were highly appreciated. The next movies lined up for the actor are Laxmi Bomb and Suryavanshi.
