- Manushi Chillar will play the role of Sanyukta in the film
Like the Karni Sena, the Akhil Bharatiya Kshatriya Mahasabha also demanded that Raja’s full name be given ‘Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan’ in the title of the film. A month ago, the Karni Sena had also opposed the demand for changing the title of the film. Karni Sen also demanded that the film be shown to him before its release. Karni Sena youth wing president and filmmaker Surjit Singh Rathore said that if he did not follow our advice, he would have to face consequences.
Significantly, Sanjay Leeli Bhansali also had to change the title of his film after heavy protests. At the same time, the makers of Akshay’s film are not ready to accept the demands of these organizations. It is believed that ‘Prithviraj’ may release on Diwali if the conditions remain favorable.
Akshay Kumar announced the project on his birthday in 2019. Manushi Chillar will also be seen in the film. Manushi will play the role of Prithviraj Chauhan’s wife Sanyukta in the film. The film is directed by Chandra Prakash Dwivedi and produced by Aditya Chopra.
