There had been reviews that Yash Raj Films has given in to the demand of the Karni Seva — the identical outfit that had persuaded Sanjay Leela Bhansali to alter the title of Padmavati to Padmaavat — and alter the title of Prithviraj to Samrat Prithviraj.

But a supply near the movie informs Subhash Ok Jha that the movie’s title won’t change.


“How a lot will our movie trade succumb to those ways from outfits who’ve made protests in opposition to Hindi movies a thriving cottage trade?” asks the supply.

“We did think about altering the title, however then we noticed nothing disrespectful in calling the movie Prithviraj. Richard Attenborough referred to as his movie Gandhi. By not prefixing the title with Mahatma, did he imply any disrespect?” asks the supply.
