The great king's legacy and clan are the subject of controversy for 'Prithviraj' todaytext_fields
If the film continues to use the term 'Rajput' for Prithviraj Chauhan, the Gujjar community in Rajasthan has threatened to halt the screening of the Bollywood movie 'Prithviraj' with Akshay Kumar.
According to the Gurjar community, Prithviraj is from the Gurjar community, and not a Rajput. However, leaders of the Rajput community deny this and claim that Gurjars were initially Gauchar, then converted to Gujjar, then became Gurjars. Vijendra Singh Shaktawat, the spokesperson for Shri Rajput Karni Sena, said that they were based in Gujarat, which is why they were given this name.Rather than a caste-related term, he explained that this term is related to place.
According to Gurjar leader Himmat Singh, Prithviraj movie is based on Prithviraj Raso, which was seen in Prithviraj movie's teaser.Based on analysis of historical inscriptions, researchers have speculated that Chand Bardai wrote this around 400 years after Prithviraj Chauhan's reign. A fictional epic known as the Raso epic was written as early as the 16th century. It was written by Chand Bardai in Pringal, a language derived from Bajra and Rajasthani.
He said that the Pringal language was not used during the reign of Gurjar emperor Prithviraj Chauhan, but during that of the poet.
