Period films seem to have become Akshay Kumar's new favorite. The superstar will very soon be seen in Reema Kagti's 'Gold' and then in Anurag Singh's 'Kesari', both of which go back in time. And now, he has signed yet another historic film with Yash Raj Films. The new project is based on the life of Indian king, Prithviraj Chauhan.
The film will be directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi
A media report has it that Akshay and YRF were planning to collaborate for a while now. Earlier, there were rumors that Akshay will also be doing a film with 'Chak De!
