Actor Akshay Kumar is all geared up for the release of his upcoming period drama, Prithviraj. The film is set to face a box office clash with Kamal Haasan’s Vikram and Adivi Sesh starrer Major, which are also releasing on June 3, 2022. However, the actor is unaffected and instead hopes every film does business.
In a recent media interaction, Akshay said it is wrong to think that films can't co-exist, and wished that each film does good business. “Good, I hope everyone’s film works. We can’t stop anybody from releasing their films, right? I hope every film does business because the business is all connected. We can’t exist without the other. It is wrong to think we can’t coexist. I cannot live without them, and they can’t without us. I always say we have to be united but unfortunately what I see is we are not. We always talk about dividing. nobody talks about uniting but hopefully, we will learn,” he said.

Directed by Sashi Kiran, the film also stars Sai Manjrekar, Sobhita Dhulipala, Prakash Raj, and Revathi among others. The film will release in Tamil and Hindi language and also be dubbed in Malayalam.
