Actor Akshay Kumar has started shooting for historical drama Prithviraj. Sonu Sood also joined Akshay at the shoot that began over the weekend. The Yash Raj Films project is based on the life of King Prithviraj Chauhan. Directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, the magnum opus also marks the Bollywood debut of former Miss World Manushi Chhillar, who plays the character of Sanyogita, the love interest of King Prithviraj, to be played by Akshay. Manushi is set to join the cast on Tuesday. The film also stars Sanjay Dutt.

The filming of a major chunk of the movie got completed before the coronavirus pandemic. YRF has now built an extravagant set inside the YRF Studios compound, and the shooting has been planned with strict safety precautions in place.

Tumbbad's creative director Anand Gandhi reveals secret about its making

Critically acclaimed film Tumbbad completes two years of its release today. On the occasion, the film's creative director Anand Gandhi opened up about the idea behind the film and its central character."For centuries, men have automatically been granted social privilege, control of property, and moral authority by just the virtue of their birth. The patriarchal system has granted some the power to incessantly violate even the most fundamental rights of the ones excluded from the system because of their gender or their caste - in some cases, commit horrors upon the victims of their oppression. Tumbbad is an allegory for the horror of patriarchal power centers (Sarkar) run by a toxic mix of consumerism (the foreign goods), greed (the gold), and intoxication (the opium). It’s the story of a patriarch claiming his position of authoritarian power lost to his bastard-hood so he can own, control and oppress just like his biological father he once hated (as seen through his relationship with his widowed mistress). To do this, he has to literally steal this power from Hastar, the cursed monster of toxic greed, abuse, and theft accumulated over centuries," Anand said in a statement.
