Prithviraj: The Akshay Kumar and Manushi Chhillar Land in Trouble – HERE’S WHY

The Gurjars of Rajasthan have vowed to boycott the Bollywood film ‘Prithviraj’, starring Akshay Kumar, if the film continues to cite Prithviraj Chauhan as a Rajput.


Prithviraj, according to the community, belonged to Gurjar society and was not a Rajput. However, leaders of the Rajput community have flatly denied their claim, claiming that Gurjars were originally “gauchar”, who later converted to Gujjars and then Gurjars. According to Shri Rajput Karni Sena’s national spokesman, Vijendra Singh Shaktawat, they are mainly from Gujarat, hence the name.

He clarified that this is a geographic expression, not a caste term. Members of the Gurjar community held a protest in Ajmer two days ago, threatening to stop the film’s release until Prithviraj Chauhan is shown as a Gurjar monarch. Himmat Singh, a Gurjar leader, stated that the Prithviraj film is based on Chand Bardai’s novel Prithviraj Raso, which was featured in the teaser for the film. After researching historical inscriptions, experts believe Chand Bardai wrote it about 400 years after Prithviraj Chauhan’s reign. The fictional Raso epic was written in the sixteenth century. Chand Bardai wrote the epic in the Pringal language, which is a mix of Bajra and Rajasthani.

According to Himmat Singh, the Sanskrit language was used during the reign of the Gurjar monarch Prithviraj Chauhan, but not the Pringal language used by the poet. The film’s problem stems from the fact that the Rajput name was used during the reign of Chand Bardai, and not that of Prithviraj Chauhan, he claimed, adding that Prithviraj Chauhan’s father was Someshwar of the Gujjar caste, and therefore would the son must also be a Gurjar. According to Shaktawat, Rajput is a title rather than a caste. However, it is also true that Rajputs represent people associated with the land, ie sons of the soil who are willing to give their lives for the cause of their homeland.
