The makers of Prithviraj, starring Akshay Kumar and Manushi Chhillar among others, have announced the new release date of the film with four motion posters. Prithviraj is all set to hit screens on 10 June. It will release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

The motion posters introduce the characters of Akshay, Manushi, Sonu Sood and Sanjay Dutt. While Akshay and Manushi play Prithviraj and Sanyogita respectively, Sonu essays the role of Chand Vardhai and Sanjay plays Kaka Kanha.


Prithviraj is mainly inspired by late poet Chand Bardai's epic titled Prithviraj Raso. Earlier, it was supposed to release on 21 January, but got pushed due to the pandemic.

Prithviraj is directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi. Speaking about the film Dwivedi had earlier said in a statement, "Prithviraj is based mainly on medieval literature, an epic called Prithviraj Raso by the poet Chand Bardai. Apart from a couple of versions of Raso, there are other literary works on Prithviraj, his life, and times. In addition to these, there are commentaries on Raso."

He added that he had to "get involved in exhaustive research" for the film.
