Akshay Kumar Prithviraj: On the occasion of the birthday of Emperor Prithviraj Chauhan, born in 1540, Akshay Kumar, Manushi Chhillar and director Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi launched the grand trailer of the film ‘Prithviraj’ at Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai. Akshay Kumar, on the special occasion of the trailer launch of his historical film ‘Prithviraj’, said that he is proud that he got a chance to play the role of India’s greatest son, Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan.
Akshay Kumar said that he had never got a chance to act in such a grand and historical film in his 30-year long career. It felt like his life had become successful.
Akshay Kumar said that Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi had given him a book called ‘Prithviraj Raso’ to read, after which he realized how big and great a warrior he was. Akshay Kumar said that when he used to study in school, only one paragraph was taught in school about Emperor Prithviraj Chauhan.
Akshay Kumar said that he wants the children of the country to know about history, about Emperor Prithviraj Chauhan and that is why he also wants to appeal to the governments of the country that they should take this film in schools. It should be shown compulsorily so that the children are aware of the history of the country.
Akshay Kumar got emotional on this occasion and said that I wish his mother was alive today and could see him in the role of Samrat in the film ‘Prithviraj’. As he spoke, Akshay became emotional and his throat swelled immediately. Akshay Kumar said that whatever is shown in this film is correct, but he is surprised that people did not know anything about history. Giving information, Akshay Kumar said that the director Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi has not only worked very hard to make this film, but he was doing research for this film for 18 years.
Director Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi said that within two days of narrating the story of the film, producer Aditya Chopra had agreed to make the film and the very next day it was decided that Akshay Kumar would play the lead role in the film. . Akshay Kumar told that the shooting of the film ‘Prithviraj’ was completed in just 42 days. Director Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi also praised Akshay Kumar’s habit of reaching the film set before time, his dedication towards the film and his discipline while shooting.
Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi while giving his clarification on the controversy regarding the title of the film said that the first work which is considered in the writing tradition of India is ‘Prithviraj Raso’ and in that too he has not been called ‘Emperor’. He said that the second work is ‘Prithviraj Vijaya’, in that too there is no mention of ‘Emperor’ for Prithviraj. He said that even in ‘Sanskrit literature’ published in 2015, there is no mention of the emperor.
He said, ‘Whenever we go to Delhi, there is a road named Prithviraj Road. No one should be hurt to address any person in his name. I also call Ram as Ram Bhadra. I also call Shri Ram. There is a saying in Gujarati – Hari tara naam chhe thousand… that means hari tere naam hai thousand… similarly there are many names of Prithviraj… by whatever name you call such a mighty person… call with affection.. . I think the society should accept it and there should be no objection.”
It is noteworthy that the Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena had objected to the title of the film and demanded that ‘Samrat’ should also be included in the name of the film and to name the film simply ‘Prithviraj’ is an insult to the great warrior. On the title controversy of the film ‘Prithviraj’ to be released across the country on June 3, Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi said that anyone who has any doubts about the name of the film, their doubts will be cleared after watching the film.
Manushi Chhillar, who won the Miss World title in 2018, opened up about her Bollywood debut with ‘Prithviraj’, saying that she got a chance to play the role of Rani Samyukta in her very first film and work in Yash Raj Films, for which she herself considers him lucky. Significantly, when Akshay Kumar was asked whether he would like to show ‘Prithviraj’ to the Prime Minister, Akshay Kumar said, ‘Who am I to show him the film? If they feel, they will see for themselves.
