Manushi Chhillar who will be making her Bollywood debut in the historical drama ‘Prithviraj’, starring opposite Akshay Kumar, is really excited about playing the royal queen ‘Sanyogita’ in the film.
Reported on ZEE News, Chhillar feels really grateful to be making her mark as a heroine in a Yash Raj film, “I have grown up on YRF films like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Bachna Ae Haseeno, Band Baaja Baarat, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, etc and have always been fascinated about how the heroines have been presented and projected in such movies. Such actresses captured the imagination of the audiences and entertained them through their craft.”
Chhillar continue to add, “Having loved such characters on screen, having chilled and danced on the songs of these beautiful actresses growing up, and having idolized such screen icons, it is quite cool for me that I’m a YRF heroine today. I’m fortunate that I am being groomed and managed by the company for my debut film and career in Bollywood.”
The Miss World 2017 winner really hopes that her hard work will be appreciated by the audience, “It is a huge honour for me and I’m giving my everything and working really hard to try and get a lot of love and appreciation from audiences when my film releases. I’d want to contribute towards portrayal of Indian woman in cinema who are forward-thinking, beautiful, strong, vocal, independent and upright human beings. Sanyogita is a dream role for me and I’m doing my best to do justice to the responsibility that has been entrusted on me.”
Directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, the film is slated to release in November 2020.
