Prithviraj, starring Akshay Kumar, is mired in two controversies

A day after Karni Sena demanded a title change for Prithviraj, Akshay Kumar’s mythological following finds itself embroiled in two more controversies.

The Akhil Bharatiya Veer Gurjar Mahasabha seems to have a problem with the depiction of the 12th century warrior king. The organization stated that Prithviraj was a Gurjar and should be portrayed as such in the film, rather than a Rajput, or Mahasabha would not allow his release.

Manish Bhargad, the chairman of Mahasabha in the state of Rajasthan, claimed that his organization met with the film’s producer last year and even brought him historical evidence to correct the facts in his film. He also claimed that the producer had assured the Mahasabha that the film would have no anti-community content.

Regarding Karni Sena’s request, the organization has requested that the title of the film be changed to include the word ‘Samrat’ before ‘Prithviraj’. They want the title of the film to be Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan. The organization has stated that it will not allow the film to be released in Rajasthan unless the title is changed.
