Ekta Kapoor's 'OATIMD' was finally released in Rajasthan on Friday, a day after its India release. Shri Rajput Karni Sena, which has been protesting against distortion of facts in Balaji's serial Jodha Akbar, had announced it will not let any Ekta film to be released in the state, until name of the characters and the show are changed. 

To sort out the matter, Ekta especially flew down to Jaipur on August 15 around 12 noon, had a meeting with the Rajput Karni Sena members and its chief Lokendra Singh Kalvi. "We never had any intentions of hurting anybody's feelings through our show. But if it, in any manner has hurt anybody I sincerely apologize for it. As far as the name of the show is concerned, we are ready to change the name from Jodha Akbar to only Akbar. We are also ready to change the name of the characters," assured Ekta. She also agreed to not use the terms Kshatriya or Rajput in the serial, but added, "We cannot stop the show since we have contractual obligations. But if the channel refuses to make changes, Balaji as the production company will withdraw from the show." 

It was only after this OATIMD, which was supposed to be screened at the morning shows could be screened. "Yes, only after her confirmation and Sena chief's approval, the film has been released in almost 70 screens across the state," said film distributor Sanjay Chatar of Marudhar Entertainment.
