Baijiraj Trivikrama Kumari Jamwal is an English teacher by profession.

She commented on the protest going on for the movie. She said it's unfair that her family's name is being dragged into generating "free publicity" for the film.

"The sad part is that the film is getting free pre-release publicity, and that a commercial and inauthentic venture like this is using my family's name. It's not just a question of incorrect portrayal, which is established from the trailer and the 'Ghoomar' song itself, but also the fact that you're using my family's name for the commercial pre-release publicity of your film, free of cost... And the national media is talking about it. That's my problem," said Trivikrama.

To a lot of people, Rani Padmini is still a mystery. Trivikrama shares, "If you go as a tourist to Chittorgarh Fort, you're taken to Padmini's Palace, and you're shown a couple of mirrors. The tourist guide tells you about it and he points out a little pond and says she stood over there and Alauddin Khilji saw her face. But that is just packaging culture to sell to ignorant tourists."

She also shared that there's a mention of Rani Padmini in Veer Vinod, a record book on Mewar's history. "It's a historical record that shows yes she was there, she was the wife of Rawal Ratan Singh and she was only an excuse that Alauddin Khilji used to invade Chittor. The real reason was a very calculated military decision to invade," she said.
