Kumar explains why ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ is such a special film for him.

He says, “It combines my love for India, enables me to tell a story that is rooted in India’s history and folklore and is also a film for every audience segment. As an actor, I love telling stories that can reach everyone and people can have a community viewing experience. Samrat Prithviraj is a film that sits at the top of the ladder.

“It is also a spectacle that will leave audiences awe-struck.”

He adds, “Coming out of the pandemic, people want to watch films with their families and relive the theatrical experience that they used to have. ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ will deliver on this in spates because it is truly an incredible family entertainer told with a scale that’s fit to honour the daredevilry of the brave Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan.”

‘Samrat Prithviraj’ has been directed by Dr Chandraprakash Dwived. The film, which also stars Manushi Chhillar, releases in the UAE on June 3.
