The historical epic Samrat Prithviraj, starring Akshay Kumar, is banned in Kuwait and Oman. The film tells the story of King Prithviraj Chauhan, who fought valiantly to protect India from the ruthless invader Muhammad of Hor.
A senior anonymous source said: “It is unfortunate that the film, based on the life and courage of our famous Hindu Samrat Prithviraj, has been banned in some international markets, such as Kuwait and Oman. It seems that these countries accepted this stand on the eve of the film’s release. “
Samrat Prithviraj is based on the life and valour of the fearless and powerful King Prithviraj Chauhan. Akshay tells the story of a legendary warrior who fought valiantly to protect India from the ruthless invader Muhammad of Hor in this visual spectacle.
According to media reports, “in these countries, the problem is unjustifiably coloured in a religious lens. People should watch a film based on history and authenticity from a neutral point of view. The fact is that India was robbed by invaders one such invader tried to defend India to the last breath. We must look at history as it is. “
The source adds: “After the bans in Kuwait and Oman, another Islamic country, Qatar, has suspended the film. Indians living in these countries will not be able to see the film, and it is very unfortunate. This film comes once in a lifetime so that everyone can see, enjoy and celebrate their story. “
In a tweet shared by trade analyst Girish Johar, it was mentioned that the governments of the two countries have banned the film on the warrior king. He said, “In a development, Govt of Kuwait & Oman have banned #SamratPrithviraj … they will not be released there! @akshaykumar @SonuSood @duttsanjay @ManushiChhillar @yrf #DrChandraprakashDwivedi”
The day before the film was released, Akshay shared: “The entire team of Samrat Prithviraj, a film that gloriously celebrates the life of one of India’s most courageous kings, Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan, took four years to create a visual spectacle that we are all extremely proud of. As this is a true story, many aspects of Samrat’s life are less known to the people of our country, especially young people. It is our sincere request to all who watch the film from tomorrow not to release spoilers that reveal several aspects of our film that are designed to arouse awe.
