Prithviraj Release: Indian audience awaits the release of ‘Prithviraj’ starring action hero Akshay Kumar and former Miss World Manushi Chhillar. The periodic drama is all set to release on June 3, and the stars are busy promoting the movie on every platform possible. 

Manushi Chhillar is debuting in the Hindi cinema with ‘Prithviraj’. In an interview with News18, she said, “I feel Prithviraj happened at the right time when a lot of offers came in. I was in two minds when Prithviraj was offered to me, but it was only after I met Aditya Chopra, that I felt confident, and this is something that I could do.”

She further added, “I wouldn’t have been noticed by Yash Raj Films had I not been a Miss World. Yeah. So they have given me a platform, protected me and have also given me the right exposure.”

Manushi Chhillar will be playing the role of Princess Sanyogita, and Akshay Kumar will play Prithviraj. From the trailers, songs and images circulating on social media, it is clear that Yash Raj Films invested heftily in the costumes and sets. 

Did you know that the costume department created over 500 types of turbans and 50,000 outfits? According to the Financial Express, the makers of the film have revealed this detail ahead of the film release on June 3.

Director Chandraprakash Dwivedi has reportedly said, "Detailing was key to making a film like 'Prithviraj'. Like for example, 500 different turbans were created for the film. All these were authentic replication of the kinds of turbans worn by kings, masses, and people of various professions at that time.”

He further added, “Over 50,000 costumes were handmade for the film by a costume designer who, along with his team, was specially flown in from Rajasthan to stay in Mumbai and make these costumes from scratch.”
