Prithviraj Release Date Postponed: The release of Akshay Kumar's next film, Prithviraj, which was slated for January 21, 2022, has been postponed due to Omicron and the sharp surge in COVID-19 cases in India. The sharp increase in infections has resulted in severe laws across India, and some cities, like New Delhi, have decided to close theatres.

Former Miss World Manushi Chhillar will make her film debut in Prithviraj, directed by Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi. So yet, the creators have not disclosed the next release date.

Based on Prithviraj Raso, a biopic of the legendary Hindu Rajput warrior ruler of the Chahamanas Dynasty "PRITHVIRAJ CHAUHAN" that depicts his early life, military feats, marriage to Sanyukta, and battle with Muhammad of Ghor, who spearheaded the Islamic conquest of Hindustan.

Recently, the Gurjars of Rajasthan threatened to halt the screening of the Bollywood film 'Prithviraj' if the title 'Rajput' for Prithviraj Chauhan was used in the film. The group stated that Prithviraj belonged to the Gurjar tribe and was not a Rajput. However, Rajput authorities have strenuously refuted this assertion, claiming that Gurjars were originally 'Gauchar,' who then converted into Gujjars and eventually Gurjars.
