Akshay Kumar will be next seen in the historical war drama Prithviraj. The actor, at its trailer launch event, hailed it as an educational film and said that the government should make it mandatory for the school students to watch the film. Prithviraj, directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi and produced by Yash Raj films, is based on Prithviraj Raso, a Braj Bhasha epic poem about the 12th-century ruler Prithviraj Chauhan.
