Will Ekta Kapoor shut down Jodha Akbar?
Protestors from the Rajput community demand that Balaji Telefilm’s Jodha Akbar be shut immediately…
Trouble knocked the doors of Balaji Telefilms' recently launched grand historical Jodha Akbar starring Rajat Tokas and Paridhi Sharma as the leads. The show has been going through controversies since the time it has begun even though it started well.
Some days after the telecast there started coming a ticker slogan which was added in the show saying, "All the scenes and matters shown in the show are not related to history and there is no intention to hurt any particular caste or group" but still it was not enough to keep the trouble at bay for those demanding to shut down the show.
Even as there were protests by hundreds of Rajputs from various Rajput organisations blocked the Ambala - Hisar state highway, today it was representatives of the Rajput community in the city to voice their protest. They all gathered outside the office of Balaji Telefilms' in Mumbai demanding that the producers shut down the show immediately.
Our source says, "Few representatives from the Rajput society are opposing the content being shown in the show. According to them, there has been not a single woman belonging to the Rajput society named 'Jodha' in the history. The protestors also claim that the image of Rajput women is not being shown positively. The Rajput women in the show are being shown with disrespect."
The fate of the serial is in trouble as of now adds our source, "After all this chaos, there is no peace on the sets of Jodha Akbar and producer Ekta Kapoor may even take a decision to take it off air!"
Will a strong producer as Ekta take such a crucial decision within such a short notice? Only time will tell!
