Akshay Kumar to be next seen in YRF's 'Prithviraj'

Akshay Kumar to be next seen in YRF's 'Prithviraj'

New Delhi, Sep 9 (UNI) Bollywood's khiladi Akshay Kumar announced his first historical film 'Prithviraj', on his 52nd birthday on Monday.

Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Akshay said,'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'.

Yash Raj Films (YRF) said,'@akshaykumar in and as the fearless king Prithviraj Chauhan! #Prithviraj in theatres #Diwali2020 Directed by #DrChandraprakashDwivedi | @PrithvirajMovie'.

The film is based on the life and heroism of the fearless and mighty King Prithviraj Chauhan and superstar Akshay Kumar is essaying the role of the warrior. Historians and folk legends portray him as an incredibly brave king who stood in front of the merciless Muhammad of Ghor and his ruthless invaders of India.

Prithviraj's daredevilry and heroism against Muhammad of Ghor catapulted him into a legendary ruler and fighter of free India. 'Prithviraj' is, incidentally, the first ever historical of YRF.

Talking about his role Akshay says,'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.'



'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'.

'Prithviraj' will release worldwide on Diwali 2020.
