Amar Singh Rathore was a great Rajput warrior who chased an insolent imperial messenger into Agra fort and beheaded him in front of Emperor Jahangir himself; he escaped by jumping down with his horse from the fort’s ramparts. This entire scene-the chase, the beheading & the escape-was the main highlight of the film.
Amar Singh Rathore (11 December 1613 – 25 July 1644) was a Rajput nobleman affiliated with the royal house of Marwar in seventeenth-century India. In the emperor’s presence, he stabbed and killed Salabat Khan, who had been asked to collect the fine. He is celebrated in some popular ballads of Rajasthan, Western Uttar Pradesh and Punjab.
