The trailer of Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film Prithviraj, directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi was released on Monday. The film will feature Akshay Kumar in the lead role of king Prithviraj Chauhan of the Chauhan dynasty. The historical drama is the debut film of the former Miss World Manushi Chillar, and will also star Sonu Sood and Sanjay Dutt in pivotal roles.

Taking to social media, Akshay Kumar dropped the trailer and wrote, “The immortal saga of valor and might. This is the story of Emperor Prithviraj Chauhan.”

While Akshay Kumar fans are loving the trailer, there are people who are not much impressed with it and are comparing it with Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Bajirao Mastani. 

A fan wrote, “Trailer looks good. Had no hopes after teaser but it doesn’t look that bad. Let’s give it a chance. Prabhas has Adipurush. I hope he doesn’t dub himself.” Another fan replied to Akshay’s tweet and stated, “A Combination of Bajirao mastani and Padmavat…I think @sanjayleela shoud direct it…i was thinking that it’s a fan-made trailer but was posted by Akshay sir so I had to believe it…bahut bakwas trailer h yar.” 

Prithviraj is all set to release on June 3. The film was earlier slated to release in 2020, but due to the pandemic, the release got postponed multiple times. Apart from Hindi, the movie will also be released in Tamil and Telugu.
