The film seems to be a big project, it will be directed by Dr CHandra Prakash Dwivedi under Yash Raj Film banner. The makers are yet to announce the female lead of the film, who will be playing the role of Sanyogita.
The film might clash with Kangana Ranaut’s Dhaakad next year. The actor plays a daring gun-wielding fighter in the film and had released a teaser last month.
Akshay has booked next year’s Diwali schedule as the film will be releasing on Diwali 2020. Prithviraj Chauhan ruled present-day Rajasthan, Haryana, Delhi and some parts of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.

Akshay just saw the release of his film Mission Mangal, which is nearing the Rs 200 crore mark at the box office. The film was based on India’s Mars Orbiter Mission and also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menen and Sharman Joshi.
Asking about how he feels about the role, Akshay Kumar said, “It is truly an honor that I will be playing the role of one of the most fearless and courageous kings of India, Prithviraj Chauhan. As a nation, we should always celebrate our heroes and immortalize what they did to propagate the values that Indians lived by. Prithviraj is our attempt to bring to light his valor and daredevilry. Prithviraj was the only person standing in front of a merciless nemesis and the bravery he showed, made him a true Indian hero, an inspiration for generations and a legend. So this announcement coming on my birthday has indeed made it more special for me.”
