Prithviraj is an upcoming 2020 Indian Hindi-language historical action drama film directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi and produced by Aditya Chopra under his production house Yash Raj Films. It is about the life of the Chahamana Rajput king Prithviraj Chauhan and stars Akshay Kumar in the titular role, while Manushi Chhillar (in her film debut) plays his wife Sanyogita. The film was officially announced on 9 September 2019, which marked the occasion of Kumar’s 52nd birthday, with a motion poster released on social media. Principal photography of the film began on 15 November 2019, and it is scheduled to release in theaters in India on the occasion of Diwali in 2020.
Principal photography commenced on 15 November 2019 at Jamwaramgarh, Jaipur, Rajasthan. A song was shot in January 2020. Later the filming was postponed in March 2020 due to Coronavirus pandemic in India. Ahead of the 2020 monsoon season, sets created for the film in Rajasthan were taken down because the cost of maintaining them during the corona-virus lockdown was too high. With no filming expected to take place before the monsoon season, the filmmakers reportedly made the decision to destroy the Dahisar sets, Yash Raj Films has confirmed. Two sets were erected in Dahisar. One was a palace and the other an arena in which an action sequence was supposed to be filmed. According to Yash Raj, the sequences will now be shot at an indoor set once filming is allowed to resume.
