Manushi Chillar, Miss World 2017, has been in the media industry since a very long period of time and has worked with some big projects. She will, however, get her big break with upcoming film, Prithviraj.
The film is based on the life of Prithviraj Chauhan, his heroic and dauntless life. Starring Akshay as Prithviraj, the film will star Manushi Chillar playing the role of his lady love, Sanyogita.
Director of the film, Chandraprakash Dwivedi said “We auditioned a lot of young, fresh faces for the role because we were looking for a stunningly gorgeous Indian heroine. While Sanyogita was an incredibly beautiful person, she was also a strong, confident girl. We were looking to find someone who could match the magnetic persona of Sanyogita and we found that in Manushi.”
On debuting opposite such a massive star of the entertainment industry, Manushi said, “I'm thoroughly happy and thrilled about the learnings that I will have through this journey. My life, so far, has really been a fairy tale. From becoming Miss India and then Miss World to now getting such a big project as my debut film, it's like a new, exciting chapter of my life.”
She further added, “She was a powerful personality and she stood up for what is right and took the most important decisions of her life by herself. Her life is an extremely important chapter in Indian history and I will try my best to play her as accurately as possible.”
Before finalising Manushi for the role, the director said that Miss World 2017 had previously auditioned “for the role a couple of times.”
Manushi’s life has been nothing less than a fairy tale and she is now looking forward to the big break of her career.
Prithviraj will release on Diwali next year.
