Actress Manushi Chhillar continues to release teasers of her look as Queen Sanyogita from the upcoming period fantasy epic, Prithviraj. The film, directed by Chandra Prakash Dwivedi, will feature Akshay Kumar in the role of the legendary king. 

While Chhillar has been sharing some images of herself in character from the sets, she has been careful to avoid showing off her look very clearly. The latest image features a doodle of the queen made by her.

In a quote to IANS, the actress said, "I have been doodling for some time now, and it’s something that I do to explore my creative side whenever I get a chance. I travel with a cute blackboard and chalks to the sets, and during the breaks, I like to doodle." 

Speaking about the quote accompanying her doodle, Chhillar was quoted as saying, "From the time my director met me, he told me that remember ‘you are princess Sanyogita, you should roar like a lioness!’ and this has stayed with me. I have tried to channelise my director’s vision on the sets. It is a very powerful line as it shows the resolve, the spirit and courage of Princess Sanyogita. It made me understand how I have to depict her and her life on screen." 

The actress has previously shared silhouettes of herself in character, while preparing for the shoot of Dwivedi's film.
