Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar, who is the leading lady of Yash Raj Films (YRF) big ticket entertainer ‘Prithviraj’, says Akshay Kumar with whom she is sharing the screen space in her Bollywood debut, is very encouraging of her work and she is grateful for the same.
“I consider myself fortunate to be working with the team and everyone has been wonderful. It is daunting when you debut and you want to do your best and give it your all. Everyone including Akshay sir are all very supportive and encouraging,” says Manushi.
Based on the life and heroism of the fearless and mighty King Prithviraj Chauhan, the big-budget historical had completed a major chunk of its filming before the coronavirus pandemic hit the nation.
Manushi will be seen playing the role of the gorgeous Sanyogita, the love of the king’s life.
“I am thrilled to be back on the sets of Prithviraj as I awfully missed the set life. I look forward to be on shoot every day because I am absorbing a lot and I am loving it. I was excited to be on sets with Akshay sir because I have learnt so much from him and there is so much more to learn,” she said.
‘Prithviraj’ is being directed by Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi who also directed the biggest television epic ‘Chanakya’.
