Looks like everything Akshay Kumar is saying to promote his latest film Samrat Prithviraj is getting backfired on him. First, he requested fans not to spoil the movie for those who are yet to watch it, then he boasted about the 18 years of research that has gone into the making of the movie, and it again backfired.
18 years of research, 2 years of VFX and 3 Covid-19 waves later…this day is finally here.— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) June 3, 2022

People quickly started pointing out that 18 years ago, the lead actress of the movie, Manushi Chillar, was around 6-7 years old. The audience is already unhappy with the huge age difference in Bollywood, this tweet of Akshay’s just aggravated that debate.
So the research started when Manushi Chillar was 6 yrs old, who would have thought !!! 👍 https://t.co/4dTvT3hVw2— IIIIIIIIIll (@_NairFYI) June 3, 2022

Not just that, the movie is also facing criticism for its ending.
क्या रिसर्च किए 18 साल जो यह पता नही लगा पाए कि किसकी मृत्यु कब हुई।— Sanjeev Srivastava🇮🇳 (@HaridwarSanjeev) June 4, 2022
सही में अगर तुम कक्षा 10 भी आधे मन से पढ़ लेते तो कम से कम ये तो पता रहता। https://t.co/wbucZWSVbZ
18 साल की रिसर्च ??????https://t.co/fZCZp5sgYg— A. Kamal Khan (@abkamalkhan) June 4, 2022
Even after 18 years of research you don’t get it that Gauri died long after Prithviraj Chauhan? Instead of research you should have studied till class 8.— Aniruddh Sharma (@AniruddhINC) June 3, 2022
पब्लिक को कैसे मूर्ख बना रहा हैं, फिल्म को सिनेमा के अंदर काल्पनिक बता रहा हैं बाहर रिसर्च किया इतिहास।
…and also for the acting.

Samrat Prithviraj is turning out to be more criticisms than praises for Akshay Kumar.
