Akshay Kumar’s Prithviraj is one of the biggest releases of the year and its grandeur had already captured the attention of the fans. Akshay has now talked about making of the film. He said how even the smallest details have been given attention in the movie.
Talking about the movie to IANS, Akshay said that rarely do films take a lot of effort to pull off monumental tasks and that every aspect about the life of Prithviraj Chauhan has been dealt with authenticity.
"We have paid attention to the minutest details while making the film because we wanted this to be the most glorious retelling of Samrat Prithviraj's life on the big screen," the star said.
The movie’s director, Chandraprakash Dwivedi, said that detailing was key in the project and pointed out that 500 turbans were made for the movie based on the kinds that were worn by kings and people of various professions of that time period.
He also added that over 50,000 costumes were made for filming, which was crafted by people flown in from Rajasthan to stay in Mumbai.
Prithviraj will see Akshay Kumar essay the role of the legendary Prithviraj Chauhan, in a story that will focus on a number of aspects about his life and personality. Apart from Akshay, the movie also stars Sanjay Dutt, Sonu Sood, Ashutosh Rana and Sakshi Tanwar in supporting roles. The movie also marks the film debut of Manushi Chhillar, who plays the role of Sanyogita, Prithviraj's wife.
Chandraprakash Dwivedi has previously helmed a number of historical projects for both the big screen and the small screen like Chanakya.
Prithviraj is bankrolled by Aditya Chopra under the banner of Yash Raj Films. It is scheduled to hit theatres around the country on June 3.
