Manushi is excited about the fact that two of her life’s biggest milestones fall on the same day. Manushi said, “It is really a beautiful coincidence that I gave my first shot for Prithviraj on the same day that I had won Miss World two years back. November 18th is definitely one of the most special days of my life and I’m thrilled that two of my life’s biggest milestones fall on the same day.”
Elaborating on how she was feeling after she gave her first shot for the historical film, Manushi adds, “Giving the first shot for my debut film was simply surreal. I feel a lot of gratitude today. I know I have a lot of hard work to do to prove myself as an actor and I’m prepared to do just that. I wish the universe showers the film and me with tons of good luck.”
Prithviraj hits theatres in December 2020. It is a historical period drama produced by Yash Raj Films, and has Manushi Chhillar debuting in Bollywood for the very first time.
