Karni Sena is once again in the news. After their violent protests against the movie Padmaavati (which was retitled to Padmaavat), they are now after Prithviraj, starring Akshay Kumar and Miss World Manushi Chhillar.
But this time their request is simple and straightforward. All they are asking now is that the director and the makers of the film do not tamper with the historical facts as Sanjay Leela Bhansali did (according to them) in Padmaavat.
They staged a protest at the place of the shooting in the Jamwaramgarh village. The director, Chandra Prakash, assured them that they haven’t tampered with the facts. The leader of the outfit, Mahipal Singh Makrana, told him that they will not tolerate it if such a thing happens this time.
“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. 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.
