Akshay Kumar’s upcoming movie “Prithviraj”

Upcoming historical film Prithviraj, which will star Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar as the legendary king Prithviraj Chauhan, will be based on the epic poem Prithviraj Raso by Chand Bardai.

The highly anticipated movie’s director Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi, who has a fascination to adapt movies from path-breaking books, recently revealed that the epic Prithviraj Raso is the inspiration behind Prithviraj.

Revealing details about the movie, he said, “Prithviraj is also based mainly on medieval literature, an epic called Prithviraj Raso by the great poet Chand Bardai. Apart from a couple of versions of Raso, there are many other literary works on Prithviraj, his life, and times. In addition to these, there are commentaries on Raso.”
