New Delhi: Indian film director and scriptwriter Chandraprakash Dwivedi is currently busy with his upcoming project ‘Prithviraj’. Produced by Aditya Chopra, this movie is a historical action-drama and is based on the life of Prithviraj Chauhan. Akshay Kumar will be seen portraying the character of the protagonist.
According to a recent report, the director of ‘Prithviraj’ Chandraprakash Dwivedi had a fallout with the producer Aditya Chopra when the former decided to make a big announcement with informing Chopra.
However, Dwivedi has come out and blasted the rumours saying that the report is ‘absolutely baseless and is malicious in its intent’. A report this morning claimed that they two parted ways after Ram Setu’s announcement because Adi was not kept in the loop for the same. The malicious report claimed that Adi had fired Dwivedi and is now editing the film himself, which is also a figment of their imagination according to the film-maker.
Chandraprakash Dwivedi said, “This rumour published by Bollywood Hungama is absolutely baseless and is malicious in its intent. Adi and I have an extremely good relationship bound by mutual respect for each other’s craft. Adi, as a producer, has given me complete creative freedom to try and deliver my vision for Prithviraj on screen. I’m thankful for his constant support.”
He further added, “Such reports are agenda-driven, intended at creating discord within relationships and smells of a vendetta. I would strongly urge the media to not pay any attention to such claims. Adi and I are creating a project that we feel will stand out for its intent and such motivated articles won’t derail us from delivering our vision to audiences. Adi and I are also discussing and will collaborate on future projects. They will be revealed in due course of time.”
Other than Akshay Kumar, this movie also stars Sanjay Dutt, Sonu Sood, Ashutosh Rana and Sakshi Tanwar in pivotal roles. ‘Prithviraj’ will mark the debut of Miss World 2017, Manushi Chhillar, who will be seen playing the character of Prithiviraj Chauhan’s wife Sanyogita.
