SyeRaa (film) opening event

Like many other biopics, the film is already mired in multiple controversies.
One is History:
"Chiranjeevi's 'Sye Raa': Why did Narasimha Reddy actually rebel against the British?
The trailer of 'Sye Raa' shows Narasimha Reddy as a patriot of 'Bharat', but historians say that the 1846 rebellion wasn’t about nationalism. The war was a challenge that the chieftain of Koilkuntala threw at the British after the latter tried to remove the privileges accorded to the polygars and also attempted to acquire their estates....However, Chiranjeevi in Sye Raa comes across as an aggressive patriot, who is seen screaming "Bharat Mata ki jai" a couple of times in the trailer. As Vishnu Priya rightly points out in her article published on Feminism in India, “It was in only in 1873, the notion of Bharat Mata was put forward through a play of the same name by Kiran Chandra Bandhopadhyay. Later on, Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyaya wrote a hymn named Vande Mataram in 1875 as a filler in his journal Bangadarshan.” Clearly, neither Bharat Mata nor patriotism was the driving force which led to the rebellion of 1846....While their ambition was to retain power and property, the peasants had long-standing grievances against the British. However, despite differences, people like Narasimha Reddy had close bonds with the villagers. 'Motives would have been selfish but the war was majorly fought against fiscal oppression which affected all classes equally.'"
