Historical Inaccuracies[edit]

The stories had many historical inaccuracies such as depicting Pratap fight Akbar and Bairam Khan personally multiple times, Pratap and Udai Singh staying in Chittor during the Siege of Chittorgarh, while no such thing happened in history. Some characters that never existed in real history were also added like Badshah Khan, Mahmud Shah, Isar Kaka. There were also some timeline inaccuracies like Rao Surtan was shown alive in the 1550s while he died back in 1544. The show also depicted Mughals as evil and villainous to add thrill to the drama. Many fake battles were depicted, such as a battle between Mewar and Marwar in 1559, and Ajmer and Alwar being reconquered. Some characters were killed before they were killed in reality e.g Akbar's mother Hamida Begum was killed in 1559-1560 while she died long after in 1604 when Akbar himself was an old man. Pratap's wife Ajabde Punwar was killed in 1575-1576 while she died in 1591 long after the Battle of Haldighati Websites such asIndiaopines have criticized the drama for its historical inaccuracy.
