Yash Raj Films’ first historical drama, Prithviraj, which is based on the life and valour of the fearless and mighty King Prithviraj Chauhan is gearing up for it’s theatrical release June 3rd. Akshay Kumar is essaying the role of the legendary warrior who fought valiantly to protect India from the merciless invader Muhammad of Ghor.
We have been awed by the trailer and now we have the first song ‘Hari Har’. Composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and sung by Adarsh Shinde, the actor feels as if this stirring song brings forward the essence of the film.
Akshay says, “According to me, ‘Hari Har’ is the soul of the film and salutes the daredevil spirit of Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan who sacrificed everything to protect his motherland from the merciless invader, Mohammad of Ghor. ‘Hari Har’ is brimming with the mighty king’s resolve to protect India which is why I connect so deeply with the song.”
He adds, “It captures the essence of Samrat Prithviraj’s life and represents his strong value system that made him the fearless king that he became. ‘Hari Har’is a song that I fell in love with right from the first music listening exercise. Even today, I listen to it very frequently because it is one of the most patriotic songs that I have heard in my entire acting career.”
