On May 9, Akshay Kumar grabbed the internet by storm by releasing the teaser for his forthcoming flick Prithviraj. Manushi Chhillar plays the lead in the film, which is produced by Yash Raj Films and directed by Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi.
The media questioned Akshay Kumar if he will organise a special screening for Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the premiere. The actor from Bachchhan Paandey received the most positive feedback. He explained, “Who am I to show the film to PM Modi? If he wants to watch it, he will. I am sure.” Recently, Akshay Kumar was in the headlines as he shared a video of PM Modi singing a patriotic song in Berlin on Twitter. He wrote, “@narendramodi Ji, you gave him the moment of his life (This made my heart happy to see such a lovely anddaz of this child’s patriotism. @narendramodi ji you gave him the moment of his life) (sic).”
Akshay Kumar disclosed during the trailer event that the narration of the film gave him shivers, and he immediately said yes to the script.
“It brings together history, patriotism, the portrayal of the values that we should live by, and also tells a story of love that is rare to find,” says Kumar. The Padman actor further revealed that he believes that Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi is the right person to make this film and do justice to the story. “The film has a huge scale that a historical like this deserves. It is an honour to portray someone who has done so much for the India that we know,” he had shared.
The film starring Akshay Kumar will be released on June 3rd.
