“She [princess Sanyogita] was a powerful personality and stood up for what is right and took the most important decisions by herself. Her life is an extremely important chapter in Indian history and I will try my best to play her as accurately as possible,” Manushi said.
The director of Prithviraj movie, Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi also spoke about pairing Manushi with Akshay Kumar saying that they wanted a perfect, beautiful and confident girl to play the character. And they found all these things in Manushi.
“While Sanyogita was an incredibly beautiful person, she was also a strong, confident girl. We were looking to find someone who could match her magnetic persona and found that in Manushi. She has been rehearsing six days a week since then,” Dwivedi said.
Prithviraj is scheduled to hit theatres around Diwali 2020.
