KARNI Sena, an outfit representing Rajput community, has warned   Yash Raj Films against twisting historical facts related to Prithviraj Chouhan (1178-1192) stated to be the last Hindu king of Delhi. The historical film directed by Chandrapraksh Dwivedi and produced by Aditya Chopra under his production house Yash Raj Films is about the life of Chahamana king Prithviraj Chauhan and stars Akshay Kumar in the lead role of Chauhan, while Manushi Chhillar, former Miss World from Haryana, makes her debut as his wife Samyukta. The film was officially announced on 9 September 2019 on the occasion of his 52nd birthday, it is slated to be theatrically released across India on 13 November 2020 during the Diwali festival. The Karni Sena, which had made headlines for vociferously protesting last year against Bollywood film “Padmaavat” alleging distorted image portrayed of revered Rajput Queen Padmavati, has asked the producers of “Prithviraj” not to tamper with facts about the great warrior and nationalist. Led by its national president Manipal Singh Makrana, its activists made noisy demonstration during shooting of the film in Jamwaramgarh village, near Jaipur, recently. They asked director Chandra Prakash to stop the shooting. Prakash assured them that there was no tampering with historic facts in the film’s script The Karni Sena demanded a written assurance. “We had discussions with director, Chandra Prakash, regarding the film’s script. We told him that no tampering with historical facts will be tolerated,” Makrana said later. “Prithviraj Chauhan should not be portrayed as a lover in the film. The director has assured us that there is no such thing in the movie but we want a written assurance,” he said. Yash Raj Films say “Prithviraj” is based on the life of Rajput ruler Prithviraj Chauhan. He is also called Rai Pithora from the Chahamana (Chauhan) dynasty. He ruled Sapadalaksha, the traditional Chahamana territory in present-day north-western India. He controlled much of the present-day Rajasthan, Haryana, Delhi and some parts of Punjab, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. His capital was Ajmer. (edited by pk Chakravarty)
