All of you are going to see Akshay Kumar and Manushi Chillar soon in the film 'Prithviraj,' although the film has been embroiled in controversies even before its release. In fact, the Gujjar community of Rajasthan has threatened the film. Let us tell you that the Gujjars have claimed that the word Rajput has been used for Maharaja Prithviraj Chauhan in the film, although he belonged to the Gujjar community, not Rajput. On the other hand, the leaders of Rajput society completely rejected his claim. In fact, Gurjar society says that if the word 'Rajput' continues to be used for Prithviraj Chauhan, then they will not allow the film to be released.
Recently, Shri Rajput Karni Sena's national spokesperson Vijender Singh Shaktawat said that 'Gurjars were Gauchars in the beginning, which later turned into Gujjars and then Gurjars. They originally come from Gujarat and hence got this name. It is a word related to placing and not related to caste.' With this, Gurjar leader Himmat Singh said, 'Prithviraj Chauhan Raso epic was written in the 16th century, which is completely fictional. This epic was written by Chandbardai in the Pringle language, which is a mixture of Bajra and Rajasthani languages. During the reign of Gurjar emperor Prithviraj Chauhan, Sanskrit was used and not the Pringle language, which the poet has used.'
With this Himmat Singh further said, 'According to historical evidence, Rajputs never existed before the thirteenth century. We have proved these facts and in present times people of the Rajput caste have also accepted it. So he claimed himself to be a Kshatriya and not a Rajput.' Let us tell you that the film Prithviraj will be released in theatres on January 21, 2022.
