Prithviraj: Complaint filed against Yash Raj Films, for hurting Hindu sentiments through the Akshay Kumar starrer

Shri. Surjeet Singh Rathore, the National President of Sanatan Sena filed a criminal complaint under Indian Penal Code T86) against Yash Raj Films Pvt. Ltd. on Monday.

The YRF film is a biopic on emperor Prithviraj Chauhan and is directed by Chandraparaksh Dwivedi. Mr. Surjit states that, “The Hindu Warrior King his highness Prithviraj Chauhan is highly worshiped and followed personality and has special place in the heart of every Hindu and for that matter who every Indian believes in the vast Indian History.” The movie is titled as ‘Prithviraj’ and this has hurt the Hindu sentiments as YRF films have addressed the Hindu Warrior King his highness Prithviraj Chauhan in a singular manner.

Recently, Rathore had put out his three conditions, which included, ‘screening of the film before its release’, ‘the film be shown to the Rajput society’, and the ‘title of the film to have the full name — Veer Yoddha Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan’. It even warned that if Akshay and Aditya Chopra do not accept their demand, they will face a situation similar to Sanjay Leela Bhansali during Padmaavat.

In a post, Surjeet Singh Rathore added that the country and world should be shown Emperor Prithviraj Chauhan’s life through this film. Pressing the demand of using ‘Chauhan’ again in the title, he wrote that they honour Akshay Kumar and he would be proud that he has played the role of Prithviraj Chauhan.

In a statement shared earlier, Akshay Kumar also mentioned, “It is truly an honour that I will be playing the role of one of the most fearless and courageous kings of India, Prithviraj Chauhan. As a nation, we should always celebrate our heroes and immortalize what they did to propagate the values that Indians lived by. Prithviraj is our attempt to bring to light his valour and daredevilry. Prithviraj was the only person standing in front of a merciless nemesis and the bravery he showed, made him a true Indian hero, an inspiration for generations and a legend. So this announcement coming on my birthday has indeed made it more special for me.”

The historical epic will see Miss Universe Manushi Chillar alongside Akshay. The ensemble cast also features actors like Sanjay Dutt, Sonu Sood, Ashutosh Rana, Sakshi Tanwar, Manav Vij and Lalit Tiwari.
