In an Exclusive interaction with PopDiaries Akshay opened up on what learnings he had from this journey,
“You won’t believe this but Samrat Prithviraj was actual a larger than life man. He’s putting the thought of equality from that period. He always put his queen equal to him and faced revolt against that thought. He was a man of honour and my mother used to teach me and tell me stories of Prithviraj Chauhan from our history books. I wish she was alive today I could show her that I played his character on screen.”
Further, Akshay elaborated on how Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi has worked emmensly on this project for around 18 years. “He has worked on this film and this story for 18 years, no one wanted to promote it but finally YRF did and here we are. I trust my director completely and whatever I’ve worked is his inputs and ideas.”
After portraying Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan on the screen, which would be the next historical character that he wants to play? Well he said, “playing these characters is really difficult than it seems, cause you never saw them in real life or you have no videos or images of them and still you’ve to pulled of every bit of their skin. Next, I would really like to play Mahraj Sambhaji.”
Yash Raj Films’ first historical, Prithviraj, is based on the life and valour of the fearless and mighty King Prithviraj Chauhan. He is essaying the role of the legendary warrior who fought valiantly to protect India from the merciless invader Muhammad of Ghor in this visual spectacle. The film will also focus on the beautiful love story between Samrat Prithviraj and his beloved Princess Sanyogita, played by debutant Manushi Chhillar, former Miss World 2017.
