The epic historical picture Samrat Prithviraj, starring Akshay Kumar, continues to struggle at the box office, grossing barely ₹55 crores in its first week, according to early estimates. Chandraprakash Dwivedi wrote and directed the film, which is based on the lives and times of Rajput emperor Prithviraj Chauhan.
