Akshay Kumar’s film Samrat Prithviraj is a major flop. This is evident from its box office numbers which keep dropping every day. Released on June 3, the historical drama by Akshay Kumar and Manushi Chhillar is about to wrap its run in theaters, according to movie insiders. Well, the film’s failure left producer Aditya Chopra furious, who now blames it all on Akshay Kumar.


Samrat Prithviraj, written and directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, is based on the life and times of Rajput Emperor Prithviraj Chauhan. It did not receive a good response in theaters. The film also exploded at the box office. This is Aditya Chopra’s second consecutive flop after Jayeshbhai Jordaar which featured Ranveer Singh in the lead role. Broadcasts of the film had to be canceled due to lack of attendance. And now, with Samrat Prithviraj, history has repeated itself. The National Herald reports that the blame for the historical drama’s failure is placed on its frontman, Akshay Kumar’s shoulder.

“He didn’t listen,” a source said. “The film required particular concentration. He wouldn’t even grow a real moustache, because he was doing other things at the same time. When he was playing someone so historically significant, why couldn’t he have done this one project and put his best foot forward in it? Not only that, even the film’s architects blame Akshay Kumar for Samrat Prithviraj’s failure, the report suggests.


Produced by Yash Raj Films, Samrat Prithviraj is based on Prithviraj Raso, an epic poem in the Braj language about the life of Prithviraj Chauhan. It shows the life of the fearless King Prithviraj Chauhan. Akshay Kumar tries out the role of the legendary warrior who bravely fought against Muhammad of Ghor. Manushi Chhillar plays Sanyogita, the beloved of King Prithviraj Chauhan. The film also stars Sanjay Dutt and Sonu Sood. Samrat Prithviraj was released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on June 3. Originally titled Prithviraj, the film was renamed Samrat Prithviraj following a legal dispute a week before its scheduled release.
