Miss World 2017 Manushi Chillar’s Bollywood debut has been the talk of the town since a couple of months now. Speculations have been rife that she is gearing up for her big career jump in Bollywood. Now, it is being reported that she has landed a big project with Akshay Kumar as the male lead.
Reportedly, she will be foraying as the leading lady of Akshay’s Yash Raj Productions movie and will play his wife in Prithviraj Chauhan’s biopic. A source close to DNA informed,
“Manushi will be making her big Bollywood debut opposite none other than Akshay Kumar. She has been signed on for the Prithviraj Chauhan biopic that is expected to go on floors sometime towards the later half of this year. Chandraprakash Dwivedi is directing the historical drama and YRF is producing it. 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.”
The source adds,
“Interestingly, the leggy lass was also offered the Hindi remake of the Telugu hit RX100 opposite Suniel Shetty’s son Ahan, which is the latter’s launch pad. “However, Manushi felt that venturing into Bollywood with another newcomer would be too much of a pressure. She felt making her debut opposite an established star would be a better bet,”
He further adds,
“Everything is being kept hush-hush for now and the announcement will be made at the right time. Presently, Manushi is undergoing all the necessary training for her debut.”
Back when Akshay was asked about the same, he had said,
“The talks are on.”
Manushi was earlier in news to make her Bollywood debut with Ranveer Singh. A source close to the film told Bollywood Hungama,
“Yes Ranveer Singh and Manushi Chhillar have been cast for the film that will be directed by Maneesh Sharma. However, given the fact that Ranveer is very busy, and also the fact that Manushi will be making her debut in Farah Khan’s film, this venture will go on floors much later.”
Revealing further details, the source added,
“It is still very early to talk about the details of the project, but since Yash Raj Films will be producing the venture with Maneesh at the helm, we can certainly expect something larger than life.”
Well, now it turns out that even though she might have bagged a role with Ranveer Singh in this Maneesh Sharma’s directorial, her B-town debut would be marked with Akshay Kumar’s Prithviraj Chauhan biopic.
