“History and historical references are being twisted in this film. A legal disclaimer is being inserted just to save one’s skin.I have told Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis how facts are being twisted and passed off as history. You cannot take liberty with history and the film needs to be banned. We even intend to move the Centre over the Rajput community’s demand for a ban on the film.,” he said.
