After Bachchhan Paandey, Akshay Kumar is back with another release, Prithviraj. The historical film is based on the life of King Prithviraj Chauhan. The film will release in theatres on June 3. For the film, the team of Prithviraj created 50,000 costumes and 500 turbans to make the period drama look authentic. In a video, Akshay Kumar said, 'Rarely do films take this much effort and embark upon such monumental tasks. Every element of our film which is based on the life of Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan has been dealt with utmost sincerity, authenticity and reverence. We have paid attention to the minutest details while making the film because we wanted this to be the most glorious retelling of Samrat Prithviraj’s life on the big screen.”Prithviraj director Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi said, “Detailing was key to making a film like Prithviraj. Like for example, 500 different turbans were created for the film. All these were authentic replication of the kinds of turbans worn by kings, masses, people of various professions at that time. We had an expert on turban styling on the set who would oversee the process of these turbans being worn by our actors.”
