Mumbai: Miss World 2017 Manushi Chillar is all set for a Bollywood debut in the ambitious historical drama Prithviraj.
Manushi stars opposite superstar Akshay Kumar who essays the title role of Prithviraj Chauhan. She feels lucky that her film is scheduled for release on Diwali, one of the most important weekends of the year.
“Growing up, I remember going to the theatre to watch a movie during Diwali. It was evident to us that one of the biggest films of the year would be released on Diwali and (watching films) was a community viewing exercise. Today, as my film has been slated for a Diwali release, I can only be grateful that I’m getting this launch by YRF,” said Manushi.
The 23-year-old actress says she has given it her all for the film, and is eager to see the audiences reaction.
“I have given this debut my all and have worked consistently on myself for over a year, to deliver this important and beautiful part. So, I’m quite eager for my film to do well and hopefully for people to love it,” she said.
