Talking about the love story of Prithviraj and Sanyogita, it seems very interesting as Sanyogita’s father Jaychand Chauhan was against Prithviraj. For his daughter’s wedding, Jaychand arranged a Swamvara and invited all the kings except Prithviraj. Moreover, to insult Prithviraj, he placed his statue at the main gate as a doorman. Despite all this, since Sanyogita had already fallen for Prithviraj, so she pours the garland in his neck.
Reports also reveal that Manav Vij will also appear in the film in the role of Mohammad Ghori. After watching the first look teaser, it can be said that Prithviraj might be blockbuster hit as Akshay Kumar will step into the shoes of a warrior for the first time.
