Yash Raj Films’ first historical, Samrat Prithviraj, is based on the life and valour of the fearless and mighty Samrat. Akshay is essaying the role of the legendary warrior who fought valiantly to protect India’s freedom from the merciless invader Muhammad of Ghor in this visual spectacle. The film released yesterday and has started on a strong note collecting 10.70 crore on Day 1, with fans and audiences hailing the film as a ‘must watch visual spectacle!’
Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi, director of the film, says, “We are pleased with the start and the momentum that our film has got from audiences. It shows that audiences have connected to a story of sacrifice and courage exhibited by our daredevil Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan. The Samrat believed that India is for Indians and fought till his last breathe to keep India free from invaders. Our goal was to tell his story to as many Indians as possible and with audiences calling our tribute a ‘Must Watch Visual Spectacle’ already, we are hoping that we entertain our countrymen to the fullest in the days to come!”
Samrat Prithviraj’s courage and leadership has inspired generations through folklore. Akshay Kumar plays the mighty warrior king and the gorgeous Manushi Chhillar plays the role of King Prithviraj’s beloved Sanyogita in this highly appreciated historical that has been made at a budget of 175 crore. The film released worldwide yesterday in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
