Akshay was not present at the shoot but Dr. Chandra Prakash Dwivedi assured Karni Sena members that no facts have been distorted in the film. The outfit demanded written assurance and also said that they can’t show Prithiviraj as a lover in the film.

“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.
