Following a row about the portrayal of an Indian warrior-king in a Bollywood movie, Facebook and Twitter posts claimed that a court instructed film-makers to present the character as belonging to the historic Gujjar clan rather than the Rajput community. However, the Delhi High Court dropped a petition about Prithviraj Chauhan's identity in the film, while the posts show a doctored news report.
