Mumbai, Jan 7 (GAJZAP) With Covid-19 cases on the rise again, most big Bollywood releases have been postponed — Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Jersey’, SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ and now Akshay Kumar’s period drama ‘Prithviraj’.

Made under the banner of Yash Raj Films and helmed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, the period drama was slated for January 21 release. Now it has been postponed and with no new release date.

The news comes days after Rajamouli’s pan-Indian film, ‘RRR’ was ahead of its January 7 release.

‘Prithviraj’ courted controversy when members of the Gurjar community protested in Ajmer, threatening to stall the film’s screening for what they said was portraying Prithviraj Chauhan as a Rajput.

The multi-starrer ensemble also includes Sanjay Dutt, Sonu Sood, Ashutosh Rana, Sakshi Tanwar, and Manushi Chhillar in prominent roles.
