After Gold and Kesari, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has signed up for yet another period film -- a movie on Prithviraj Chauhan, said a DNA report.
Produced by Yash Raj Films, the film will be directed by filmmaker Chandraprakash Dwivedi. “Akshay and YRF have been discussing to work together for quite sometime. There were rumours that Shimit Amin is directing a film with him, but that’s not true. It’s another project that will be helmed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi,” the report quoted a source as saying.
Once Akshay completes Hera Pheri 3, the film is likely to go on floors by next year.
Prithviraj Chauhan was an Indian king from the Chauhan dynasty, who ruled in the Delhi region of north-western India. He is best remembered for his battle against Muhammad of Ghor (in modern-day Afghanistan) in 1191-92 AD, called Second battle of Tarain.
