Meanwhile, the movie has landed in trouble with few communities claiming that Gowariker's Panipat has wrongly portrayed Maharaja Surajmal. Rajasthan Tourism Minister Vishvendra Singh on Sunday demanded a ban on the screening of film in north India to avoid a law and order situation, following protests against the film in Bharatpur.
