Former Miss World Manushi Chhillar considers herself fortunate to share the screen with Akshay Kumar. Manushi, who won the Miss World title in 2017, makes her Bollywood debut opposite superstar Akshay Kumar in "Prithviraj" that has recently resumed the shooting post the covid-19 lockdown.
"I'm thrilled to be back on the sets of 'Prithviraj' as I awfully missed the set life. I look forward to being on shoot every day because I'm absorbing a lot and I'm loving it. I was excited to be on sets with Akshay sir because I've learned so much from him and there is so much more to learn," Manushi said to IANS.
"I consider myself fortunate to be working with the team and everyone has been wonderful. It is daunting when you debut and you want to do your best and give it your all. Everyone including Akshay sir is very supportive and encouraging," she added.
"Prithviraj" is the upcoming historical drama film based on the life and heroism of Prithviraj Chauhan. The film had completed a major chunk of its filming before the coronavirus pandemic hit the nation and forced the lockdown in March.
The film is being directed by Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi, who helmed television epic "Chanakya" and the period drama "Pinjar".
