We know Akshay Kumar to do too many films in a year. In fact, he is known to complete his movies in less than forty days. That makes a couple of films in his kitty. This year we have a couple but not we hear a news that the B Town Khiladi actor will be doing a film playing the character of Prithiviraj Chauhan. It is a namesake film for the actor, and Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi will be directing the movie. The actor has confirmed his presence in the film, and it will hit the floor soon this year, while it is slated to release in 2020. We had been hearing rumors all this time; however, the official confirmation is yet to be made by the makers.
The sources close to Akshay Kumar confirmed that the Padman actor has already started preparing for the film. This will be his second historical film after Kesari, which is planned to hit the screen this Holi. However, the actor too has given a hint about the film stating in a tweet that he would be coming out with two action-packed movies this year on the 1st of Jan this year when he wished everyone on this juncture. Many felt that he referred to the two films – Kesari and Sooryavanshi. We have a head that he has completed his shoots for the film Kesari in 2018 itself. This year he will be busy with two films – Prithviraj Chauhan and Sooryavanshi.
