Chandraprakash Dwivedi is directing the historical drama and YRF is producing it (sic).”
Manushi had already expressed her desire to be in front of the cameras in the past. In one of her previous interviews, she said: “I do enjoy being in front of the camera and that is something new I have discovered. With all these changes that are happening in my life, I try to take things as they come. When such a situation will come when I have to make a choice, I will know a definite answer.”
Manushi will be essaying the role of Sanyogita, wife of Prithviraj Chauhan, opposite Akshay who will be seen essaying the lead. The source added: “Manushi has shown a lot of promise from the time she became a national craze. She is not only pretty but a great performer, too. She will be essaying Sanyukta’s role and will be romantically paired opposite Akshay. Aditya Chopra feels she has a good screen presence and has also got her on board as one of the talents under his banner.”
