Akshay Kumar To Play Prithviraj In His Next

Akshay Kumar, who turns 52 on his birthday today, has publicised his upcoming period drama titled Prithviraj. The entertainer reported his first historical film, which will include him as the incredible warrior, Prithviraj Chauhan.

Akshay took to Twitter to share the teaser of the film and wrote, “Elated to share about my 1st historical film on my birthday! Humbled to have the opportunity to play a hero I look up to for his valor & values- Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan in one of my biggest films #Prithviraj. Producer @yrf,director #DrChandraprakashDwivedi, releasing Diwali 2020.”

The actor said in a statement, “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.”

The actor has effectively reserved Diwali 2020 for the movie which will be coordinated by Dr Chandra Prakash Dwivedi under the banner of Yash Raj Films. The producers are yet to declare the female lead of the film, who will be viewed as Sanyogita. 

The entertainer as of late featured in an authentic war dramatisation, Kesari which gathered Rs 154 crore at the residential film industry. It was based on the Battle of Saragarhi and featured Parineeti Chopra as the female lead. A year ago, he was featured in Gold, which depended on India's first gold award win as a free country at the 1948 Olympics. 

The film is relied upon to conflict with Kangana Ranaut's up and coming film, Dhaakad one year from now. The entertainer plays a challenging firearm using a warrior in the film and had discharged a mystery a month ago. 

Akshay just observed the arrival of his film Mission Mangal, which is nearing the Rs 200 crore mark in the cinematic world. The film depended on India's Mars Orbiter Mission and furthermore stars Sonakshi Sinha, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menen and Sharman Joshi.
