Shri Rajput Karni Sena members called for a shutdown in Rajasthan as they held rallies and protests in various cities. The movie wasn’t screened in almost 179 screens.

Nagaur, Banswara, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Sikar, Jaisalmer, Sawai Madhopur, Pratapgarh and Khetdi were majorly impacted due to the shutdown. Tourists were stopped from visiting Chittorgarh fort and Jaisalmer. Now, this could incur some losses for the movie as not getting release in an entire state on its opening day is not a good sign.
