Now, Manushi has joined Akshay for the Prithviraj shoot that's currently underway at YRF Studios. She was spotted in the run up to the Prithviraj shoot date as she was doing script readings with her director, Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi.

The filmmaker's claim to fame was the biggest television epic, Chanakya, based on the life and times of the most influential political strategist of India and the multiple award-winning Pinjar.
