Mumbai, May 23: Miss World 2017 winner Manushi Chillar will reportedly make her film debut opposite Akshay Kumar in a biopic on Prithviraj Chauhan’s life directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi and produced by Yash Raj Films.
Speculations about this have been in circulation for over a week. However, sources have now confirmed that she will make her Bollywood debut with this biopic, playing the role of Sanyuktha, one of Prithviraj Chauhan’s three wives and the daughter of his rival, Kannauj king Jaichand. The film centres on their love story, and will go on floors later this year.
Manushi was reportedly earlier offered the Hindi remake of the Telugu film RX100, opposite actor Sunil Shetty’s son Ahan. She refused the offer because she thought there would be a lot of pressure to make her debut with another newcomer and it was better to act with an established actor, reports Times Now News. She was seen in a TV commercial with Ranveer Singh recently, which also led to speculations that they may work on a film soon.
