Akshay Kumar-starrer, Prithviraj is all set to have a grand release. However, ahead of its premiere, it has been reported that Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, will watch the Yash Raj Films’ production at a special preview screening on June 1 in Delhi.
As per the reports some cabinet ministers, senior politicians and high-ranking bureaucrats will also be on the list of audiences to watch the film.
“The subject matter of the film — the story of India’s last Hindu ruler Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan — is of immense interest to Amit Shah ji who has always insisted that Indians should know about the historical value and valour of bravehearts like Prithviraj Chauhan, who fought and defeated Mughal ruler Muhammad of Ghori,” an unknown source was quoted as saying.
The film, directed by PadmaShri awardee Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi, is created on an epic scale to tell the tale of wars fought by Prithviraj Chauhan, who is played by Akshay Kumar. The film will be released in the Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu versions of the film. Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi is best known for directing the television epic Chanakya and the critically acclaimed film Pinjar,
Prithviraj marks the acting debut of former Miss World Manushi Chhillar, and also stars actors Sanjay Dutt and Sonu Sood in key roles.
“The film has a massive budget and has been based on 18 years of research. While it is being promoted on all forums, to get the Home Minister of the country to watch it is a big boost to the film’s cast and crew,” adds the source.
