Manushi Chillar readies for battle in Prithviraj song Yoddha
The actor plays Sanyogita opposite Akshay Kumar's Prithviraj Chauhan in the film
Manushi Chillar gets the spotlight in Yoddha, the second song from Akshay Kumar-starrer Prithviraj. The makers released a teaser for the song on Saturday. Yoddha is picturised on Manushi, who plays Sanyogita in the film. She is seen preparing to lead a band of women in the teaser. The full song will only be seen in the film's theatrical version.
Speaking about the track, Akshay says, “Yoddha is one of the most powerful songs of the film! It gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it. Prithviraj is a film that’s rooted in history and authentically tells the story of Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan and his beloved wife Sanyogita’s life and times."
Manushi shares, “Yoddha was a big responsibility because the emotional graph of this song was cathartic and moving. Sunidhi Chauhan has sung it so powerfully. The toughest sequence that I have shot for this film is for Yoddha because it required a lot of precision in movements. Physically it was very demanding. I feel visually it is one of the most beautiful songs that we have shot for the film. The most beautiful thing about Yoddha is that it celebrates the power of a woman.”
Prithviraj has been directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi. The film is set to release on June 3 in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
