  1. There are no royal families in India. In the 21st century it is time we stopped acknowledging these glorified Zamindars of the British as ‘Royals’.

  2. Sangli did not have a King The King was always the Chhatrapati
    Patwardhans were his courtiers i.e. generals and ministers…get your facts right

  3. There are several royals who kept their praja very happy and nurtured art culture and harmony so blaming all the royals does not make sense. But caste system has been is curse in India despite sincere efforts by many social reformers,

  4. IN OLD TIME GIRLS AND QUEENS OF ROYAL FAMILY WERE NOT DANCING IN HALF NUDE SHOWING DRESS.
    THESE ROYAL BLOOD ACTREESES CAN NOT SAY ROYAL BLOOD, THEY HAVE NO SHAME TO COME ON SCREEN IN SUCH HALF NUDE DRESSED

  5. Are THEY ROYAL BLOOD IN REAL SENSE ?
    ROYAL BLOOD WEMEN CANNOT DANCE IN HALF NUDE DRESS BEFORE PUBLIC.
