Akshay Kumar-starrer Samrat Prithviraj dropped in theatres on June 3. Helmed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi and produced by Yash Raj Films, the film was reportedly made on a budget of ₹175 crore, and earned ₹90 crore in the box office worldwide. Presently, actor Sonu Sood, who portrayed the role of Prithviraj Chauhan’s court poet Chand Bardai in the period drama, talked about the movie not getting a favorable response from critics and audience.
Opening up about how he wishes Samrat Prithviraj had fared better, Sonu told the news agency PTI, “I wish the film could have done well because there was a lot of hard work put in. As an actor, it is important that you give your 100 percent and it is up to the audience to decide what is right and what is wrong in it. You have to accept your failures and learn from them and next time you can be better, you can deliver better. I, as an actor, do that. This time we failed but next time we will do well.”
Sonu talked about his role in the movie, “Prithviraj was very special and the role of Chand Bardai was very special. Whatever role I will be offered, I will keep on working hard for it and try to entertain people.”
The actor’s next project is his debut podcast, Commander Karan Saxena, based on author Amit Khan’s book series Hamladar Commander Saxena. Some of his forthcoming movies include Zee Studios action thrill ride Fateh, for which he will begin shooting in October, followed by Kisaan, helmed by E Niwas. He likewise has a Tamil film with actor Vijay Anthony.
