Speaking on Prithviraj, the upcoming movie is based on the life of Prithviraj Chauhan. Speaking on Prithviraj, he was born to the Chahamana king Someshvara and queen Karpuradevi.
A few historical shreds of evidence suggest that Prithviraj, though born in Gujarat moved to Ajmer when his father Someshvara was crowned the Chahamana king after the death of Prithviraj II.
Some of the famous events that are associated with Prithviraj is the First Battle of Tarain and the Second Battle of Tarain which Prithviraj had a lead against the merciless Muhammad Ghori. Although Prithviraj won the battle against Muhammad Ghori, the second Battle of Train proved a failure for him.
