Akshay’s Samrat Prithviraj runs into rough weather in Kuwait, Oman


Akshay Kumar’s much-awaited period drama ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ finally released in theatres today. But, in quite a saddening news, Kuwait and Oman have banned the movie while Qatar has put it in hold.

In the movie, Akshay plays the role of famed ruler Prithviraj Chauhan, who was known for his valour & leadership. The movie in all its grandeur has been made in over four years after having suffered a time loss during Covid.

Akshay Kumar recently recounted the experience of hosting a special screening of his upcoming film Samrat Prithviraj for home minister Amit Shah and described it as a ‘rare honour.’

Akshay plays king Prithviraj Chauhan of the Chauhan dynasty in the film, which will revolve around The First Battle of Tarain between the 12th-century ruler and Muhammad Ghori of the Ghurid dynasty.

Akshay Kumar, meanwhile, referred to Samrat Prithviraj as a synergy of “history, patriotism, the portrayal of the values that we should live by, and also tells a story of love that is rare to find”.

The actor said he was awed by Prithviraj Chauhan’s story. “The more I read about him, the more I was awed by how he lived and breathed every single second of his glorious life for his country and his values,” he said.
