It was just today morning that the news of Miss World 2017, Manushi Chillar, being a part of Akshay Kumar’s Prithviraj broke out. While his massive fan base was excited to witness a fresh pairing, another good news comes in the form of the movie already going on floors.
Akshay Kumar himself took to his official Twitter handle to share a video where the entire team could be seen indulging in the Muhurat Pooja. One could witness the Pandit chanting the mantras and doing the usual rituals on the clapper board while Akshay and Manushi were sitting and performing the rituals.
“Here’s to auspicious beginnings. Stepping into the world of #Prithviraj. In theatres #Diwali2020! Need your love and best wishes as always,” tweeted Akshay.

Directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, Prithviraj is based on the life and heroism of the fearless Rajput king Prithviraj Chauhan. It features superstar Akshay Kumar as Prithviraj while Manushi will play the character of the Sanyogita, the love of his life.
Manushi has said that her life so far has been a fairy tale and she is now looking forward to her big debut.
“I’m thoroughly happy and thrilled about the learnings that I will have through this journey. My life, so far, has really been a fairy tale. From becoming Miss India and then Miss World to now getting such a big project as my debut film, it’s like a new, exciting chapter of my life,” she said.
Manushi finds it a “huge responsibility” to play princess Sanyogita.
“She was a powerful personality and she stood up for what is right and took the most important decisions of her life by herself. Her life is an extremely important chapter in Indian history and I will try my best to play her as accurately as possible,” she added.
