The Karni Sena, which protested against Bollywood film Padmaavat over historic facts 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 at the shooting of the film in Jamwaramgarh village, near Jaipur, on Saturday and asked the director, Chandra Prakash, to stop the shooting.
Prakash assured them that there was no tampering with historic facts in the film's script. However, the Karni Sena demanded a written assurance.
Akshay Kumar was not shooting when the Karni Sena members staged the protest on Saturday. "We held discussions with the director, Chandra Prakash, regarding the film's script today. We told him that no tampering with historic facts will be tolerated," Makrana said on Monday.
"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. Produced by Yashraj Films, Prithviraj is based on the life of Rajput ruler Prithviraj Chauhan.
Karni Sena, back in 2017, had protested against Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer SIngh for tampering with the historic facts of the film and had halted the shooting of the film in Rajasthan. As per reports, members of The Karni Sena, led by its national president Mahipal Singh Makrana, staged a stir at the shooting location of Prithviraj in Jaipur. Yes, although Akshay Kumar wasn't shooting but director Chandra Prakash, who was shooting for the film in Jamwaramgarh village, near Jaipur, on Saturday was in for a shock when the Karni Sen staged a stir at the shooting location and asked the director to halt the shooting. While the director assured the members of the Karni Sena that they will ensure that no historical facts will be tampered, the Karni Sena demanded a written assurance.
