Release date may change due to Omicron variant
Meanwhile, it is also discussed that due to the new Omicron variant of Kovid-19, the release date of the film may also change. In this regard, the trade expert said, “If the number of corona infected continues to rise, the night curfew, which has been implemented in some states, may also be extended even after the New Year holiday. In such a situation, big budget films can suffer a lot. Due to these restrictions, the business of the film will be affected. The makers of Prithviraj are taking stock of the entire situation and will soon take a decision on whether they should release or postpone Prithviraj on its scheduled release date.”
While Sanjay Dutt will be seen in the role of Mohammad Gauri, Sonu Sood is playing the role of noted poet Chandbardai, who composed Prithviraj Raso on Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan. Poet Chandbardai was very close to Emperor Prithviraj. So with this role, Sonu’s role will go along with Akshay in the film.
