Case Title: Gurjar Samaj Sarv Sangthan Sabha Ekta Samanya Samiti v. Union of India & Ors.

The film producer Yash Raj Films (YRF) is facing issue while relasing the film which is set to be released on June 03, "Samrat Prithviraj" because Prithviraj is allegedly depicted as Rajpit instead of Gurjar.


The bench of Acting Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Sachin Datta disposed of the plea after recording the submission by counsel for the maker of the film.


Advocate Abhishek Malhotra, Naomi Chandra and Sanya Dua being representing on behalf of the film maker.


The petitioner sought to stay on the release od the file - "Samrat Prithviraj" on the ground that it wrongly projects King Prithviraj as a Rajput, even as there is material available that indiactes that he belonged to the Gurjar caste.
