Akshay shares the teaser

While sharing the teaser, Kumar wrote, "The teaser of Prithviraj captures the soul of the film, the essence of the life of the legendary warrior Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan, who knew no fear. This is our tribute to his heroism, and his life. The more I read about him, the more I was awed by how he lived, and breathed every single second of his glorious life for his country and his values. He is a legend, he is one of the bravest warriors, and he is one of the most upright kings that our country has ever seen. We hope that Indians worldwide love our salute to this mighty braveheart. We have tried to present his life story in the most authentic way possible, and the film is a homage to his unmatched bravery and courage."

Let's take a look at some of the social media reactions.
