New Delhi, June 3: After Akshay Kumar starrer 'Samrat Prithviraj' was declared tax-free in Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, netizens have been demanding the film based on the life of the fearless and mighty King Prithviraj Chauhan to be given similar status in Rajasthan as many consider the glorious Samrat hailed from the desert-state.

In Yash Raj Films' first historical movie, Akshay Kumar portrays the 12th-century legendary warrior who fought valiantly to protect India from the merciless invader Muhammad Ghori. The film was released in theatres in the country on Friday.

After the release of the film, a user on Twitter said, "Rajasthan govt can make #Prithviraj tax free. Not sure but hopefully it happens so that every Indian can know about the life of Hindu Samrat."

Another user wrote, "Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan movie should be declared as tax-free in Rajasthan."

"It may also needed to be tax-free in Rajasthan, it is the birthplace of Samrat Prithviraj Chouhan," said a third user, claiming that Rajasthan is the birthplace of Chouhan.

A BJP MLA from Ajmer North, Vasudev Devnani, also joined the netizens in urging the Rajasthan government to declare the movie tax-free, saying that the period drama will invoke a spirit of love for our motherland.

The film has been directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi who is best known for directing the television epic Chanakya and the critically acclaimed film 'Pinjar.'

The visual spectacle also features former Miss World Manushi Chhillar who is making her Hindi film debut with the movie. Chhillar essays the role of Sanyogita, Prithviraj's beloved partner.

The film also features Sanjay Dutt and Sonu Sood. 'Samrat Prithviraj' has been released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages.
