Miss World pageant winner Manushi Chhillar won million hearts with her elegance and intelligence. While the model made us all proud on a global stage, she made it clear earlier that she wants to pursue a career in acting in the Bollywood industry. Since then there are rumours of her debuting with big banner projects doing rounds over the internet and recently, it has been confirmed by the Miss World herself.

After much speculation on her debut, Manushi Chhillar is officially marking her debut in commercial acting opposite Akshay Kumar under the Yash Raj Films banner. Manushi will be debuting with the upcoming period drama Prithviraj starring Akshay Kumar in the titular character, which will be based on the iconic 12th-century monarch Prithviraj Chauhan.

Sharing her excitement for bagging the role, Manushi said, “It is a huge honour to have been chosen by a production house like Yash Raj Films as their heroine.
