Akshay Kumar and Manushi Chillar’s Prithviraj which was supposed to release on Diwali has been postponed owing to the COVID-19 situation.

Prithviraj set to be demolished
A Mid-Day report quoted a source as saying, “The head honchos of Yash Raj Films had kept the set standing over the past two months, hoping that the situation would improve soon. However, with the rains only weeks away, it doesn’t seem feasible to retain the set any longer. The makers are currently procuring necessary permission to have it pulled down. Akshay had filmed a major portion of the Chandraprakash Dwivedi-directed drama at the Dahisar set before the lockdown was announced, but some crucial sequences have yet to be shot.”
The Yash Raj Films’ spokesperson confirmed the news, saying, “This information is accurate. The set will now be put up indoors once shooting resumes.”
Prithviraj is based on the life and heroism of the fearless and mighty King Prithviraj Chauhan who is considered one of the bravest rulers of the Chahamana dynasty, who fought against the huge Ghurid army when they tried to invade the country in 1192 CE.
Directed by Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi, the film will mark the bollywood debut of Miss World 2017 winner Manushi Chhillar. The film will also stars Sanjay Dutt, Manav Vij, Sonu Sood, Ashutosh Rana, Sakshi Tanwar to name a few.
