Recently, Akshay Kumar unveiled the first song from his upcoming film titled 'Hari Har' on the Internet and he claims it to be one of the most patriotic songs that he has heard in his entire acting career. The actor took to his Instagram handle and shared, "A saga of valor and bravery. Experience the power of Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan in #HariHar song. Releasing in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Celebrate Samrat #Prithviraj Chauhan with #YRF50 only at a theatre near you on 3rd June."

Talking about the song Akshay said, "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 added that it captures the essence of Samrat Prithviraj's life and represents the strong value system that made him the fearless king that he became.
