The petition, filed by an NGO named Rashtriya Pravasi Parishad, argued that the movie is simply titled Prithviraj, which is an affront to the king who ruled a large part of India with Delhi as his capital.
“We only want the movie to have a suitable title to honour the king who ruled for nearly 26 years. In its present form, the movie is lowering the dignity of King Prithviraj Chauhan. This is in contravention of laws and therefore hurts the sentiments of the people,” the counsel argued.
The petitioners had arrayed the Union of India as well as the filmmakers as respondents in the case.
