Ever since Manushi Chhillar won the coveted title of Miss World in 2017, everyone has been eagerly waiting for her to make an announcement about her Bollywood plans, following previous beauty queens Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra into the industry, and seems like a period drama with Akshay Kumar is her choice for the grand entry. According to a report in DNA, Manushi has bagged the leading lady role opposite Akshay Kumar in Prithviraj Chauhan biopic. The actress-in-the-making will play his wife in the period drama, which is produced by Yash Raj Films. The report quoted a source as saying, “Everything is being kept hush-hush for now and the announcement will be made at the right time. Presently, Manushi is undergoing all the necessary training for her debut.”
Manushi was reportedly offered the Hindi remake of the Telugu hit RX100, which marks the debut of Suniel Shetty’s son Ahan. “However, Manushi felt that venturing into Bollywood with another newcomer would be too much of a pressure. She felt making her debut opposite an established star would be a better bet,”
With Prithviraj Chauhan biopic, Manushi will make a grand entry in films, as the project is going to be mega-budget extravaganza. The film will be directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi.
