Films

Chhillar signed a contract to act in three films with Yash Raj Films. Her first movie was “Samrat Prithviraj,” where she played the role of Sanyogita, the wife of Prithviraj. She acted alongside Akshay Kumar, who played Prithviraj. Chhillar said it was a big responsibility to play Sanyogita, a strong character who made her own important decisions. Unfortunately, the movie didn’t do well at the box office, and critics didn’t like her performance. In 2023, she appeared in another movie called “The Great Indian Family,” which also didn’t do well, and critics weren’t impressed with her acting. In 2024, she starred in “Operation Valentine” with Varun Tej, but her performance didn’t stand out due to the weak script, according to critics.
