Speaking about this, Akshay had said, "It is truly an honour that I will be playing the role of one of the most fearless and courageous kings of India, Prithviraj Chauhan. As a nation, we should always celebrate our heroes and immortalize what they did to propagate the values that Indians lived by. Prithviraj is our attempt to bring to light his valour and daredevilry. Prithviraj was the only person standing in front of a merciless nemesis and the bravery he showed, made him a true Indian hero, an inspiration for generations and a legend. So this announcement coming on my birthday has indeed made it more special for me."
Prithiviraj 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.
Previously, Akshay had acted in the war drama Kesari, which was based on the historical battle of Saragarhi, where 21 Sikh soldiers died fighting against 10,000 Afghan troops.
