Prithviraj Movie, played by Akshay Kumar, is in trouble again

The Gurjar community has a problem with Akshay Kumar’s Prithviraj Movie. Protests were made in Ajmer, Rajasthan, against the usage of the name “Rajput” in the film.

Recently, protests erupted in Ajmer against Akshay Kumar’s Prithviraj. Rajasthan’s Gurjar tribe has threatened to halt screenings of the forthcoming historical play if the title “Rajput” is not removed.


Since the film’s announcement in 2020, Akshay Kumar’s Prithviraj Movie has been dogged by controversy. People from the Gurjar community gathered in huge numbers at the Devnarayan temple in Ajmer’s Vaishali Nagar to oppose the use of the word “Rajput” for Prithviraj in the forthcoming film. They shut down highways and marched to the District Collector’s office to present a memorandum outlining their requests. Outraged demonstrators threatened to halt the screening of the film if their demands were not granted.

Harchand Gurjar, head of the All India Veer Gurjar Samaj Reform Committee, stated that the title of the film Prithviraj should be changed and that historical truths should not be altered in any way. He requested that everything be portrayed truthfully. The community maintains that the king was a member of their own. The Gurjar organization has also requested that the film be shown to their leaders and historians before Prithviraj is released in theatres.

Previously, the Karni Sena asked that the film’s title be changed to include the emperor’s full name, Prithviraj Chauhan.

Akshay Kumar plays Hindu king Prithviraj Chauhan in Prithviraj. Sanjay Dutt, Ashutosh Rana, and Sonu Sood also appear in the film. Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar will make her Bollywood debut in the film, which will be directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi.

Prithviraj has the backing of Yash Raj Films. It is scheduled to be released on January 21, 2022.
