Aditya Chopra spends crores to recreate 12th century Delhi, Ajmer and Kannauj for 'Prithviraj’

Given the magnitude of the film and the massive star cast, the makers of the film are leaving no stone unturned to give it a magnificent and realistic touch. 

The makers of the Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Prithviraj’ are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the film is a box office success. Since the film dates back to the twelfth century, Aditya Chopra went onto recreate Delhi, Ajmer and Kannauj to match the narrative of the film. Directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, the film is based on the life and valour of the fearless and mighty King Prithviraj Chauhan.

As per the report, in order to recreate the 12th century Delhi, Ajmer and Kannauj from scratch, Aditya Chopra had allocated over ₹25 crores as set design budget!

Speaking about this, Akshay Kumar said, “It was quite a task to make this film into a visual delight for audiences because we wanted to promise a big screen entertainer for everyone. Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan was chosen as the ruler of India and Delhi became his political capital. So, it was important that we recreated 12th century Delhi, Ajmer and Kannauj, cities that are linked to his reign and life authentically for people to see how magnificent the city really looked during that time.”

The film’s director Chandraprakash Dwivedi added, “Aditya Chopra took on the Herculean task to recreate Delhi, Ajmer and Kannauj and I have to congratulate the entire set-design team for being able to pull off the unthinkable. Real marble was used to build the city, 900 workers toiled hard for about eight months to build this gigantic set that was a marvel for our eyes. Every element of the city, including Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan’s palace was built from scratch. I think Aditya Chopra must have spent crores and crores of money just to get the city built to perfection. So, if people are loving what they are seeing in the trailer, they will have to wait and watch the film to see the grandeur of our sets in its full glory!”

'Prithviraj' also stars former Miss World Manushi Chhillar, who makes her debut in Bollywood with this film. She will be seen playing the role of Prithviraj’s beloved Sanyogita.

The film will be releasing on June 3 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
