The Karni Sena, which protested against Deepika Padukone-starrer Padmaavat last year, has now asked the producers of Prithviraj, an upcoming movie featuring Akshay Kumar, not to tamper with facts.

Members of the outfit, led by its national president Mahipal Singh Makrana, staged a stir during the shooting of the movie in Jamwaramgarh village, near Jaipur, on Saturday, 14 March, and asked the director, Chandra Prakash, to stop the filming.

Prakash assured them that historical facts haven’t been tampered in the film. However, the Karni Sena demanded a written assurance.


Akshay Kumar was not present at the spot during the time of the incident. “We held discussions with the director, Chandra Prakash, regarding the film’s script. We told him that no tampering with historic facts will be tolerated,” Makrana said on Monday, 16 March..

“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 added. Produced by Yashraj Films, Prithviraj is based on the life of Rajput ruler Prithviraj Chauhan.

Manushi Chhillar will make her Bollywood debut with Prithviraj. Earlier, she shared a glimpse of her first look from the film on Instagram. Manushi will be seen playing the role of Sanyogita.

The photo shows a silhouette of Manushi. Sharing the photo, she wrote, “Sanyogita #Prithviraj.”
