Akshay Kumar's big-budget periodic drama is titled Prithviraj and the film is announced for June 3rd release. Ahead of the film's title, the makers changed the title to Samrat Prithviraj. Yash Raj Films sent a letter to Shree Rajput Karni Sena after a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed by Shree Rajput Karni Sena. Yash Raj Films said that they are not here to hurt the sentiments of any person or disrespect the late king and warrior Prithviraj Chauhan. After multiple rounds of discussions, Yash Raj Films decided to solve the issue amicably.
