The glorious and interesting history of India has always fascinated the film industry. The main reason for this is the success of films made about historical events, subjects and individuals. Similarly, films made about famous personalities related to politics, sports and the world of crime have also had better results at the box office. If you look at the proceeds from the biopic ‘MS Dhoni’ of former India team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for the film ‘Manikarnika’ based on the life story of Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi, then it will be understood that films based on the true story of life How much does the audience like it? One of those films, ‘Prithviraj’, will be released in January next year and is based on the life of Prithviraj Chauhan, the last Hindu emperor of India.
Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar is playing the role of the great warrior Prithviraj Chauhan in the movie ‘Prithviraj’ which is produced under the banner of Yash Raj Films. Along with him, Sanjay Dutt, Manushi Chillar, Sonu Sood, Ashutosh Rana, and Sakshi Tanwar will also be seen in the lead roles. The film has been directed by Dr. Chandra Prakash Dwivedi. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on January 21, 2022, but before that, the uproar has started in Rajasthan. The Gurjar society of Rajasthan has threatened to stop the showing of the film. He says that if the word ‘Rajput’ continues to be used for Prithviraj Chauhan, he will not allow the film to be released. They claim that Prithviraj Chauhan belonged to the Gurjar caste, not a Rajput. The Rajputs, on the other hand, have rejected the Gujjar’s claim.
The movie ‘Prithviraj’, which will be released in theaters on January 21, 2022, has yet to fight Corona.
This is not the first time that there has not been a scandal about an actual incident or movie about a particular person. Previously, there was an uproar with veteran filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film ‘Padmavat’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’, Ashutosh Gowariker’s film ‘Jodha Akbar’, Ayushmann Khurrana’s film ‘Article 15’. But no matter how much tension this ruckus caused, the filmmakers have ultimately benefited from it. Well, to be honest, making a movie about a historical subject or about a person takes a lot of patience and hard work. This requires a lot of research work. Every step of the producer-director must be done with great care. You know what feelings get hurt because of what and the movie will get into trouble? But Bollywood has become a master at presenting such stories.
