A case has been filed against Salman Khan’s home production. The movie is Loveratri and it stars his brother-in-law aka Aayush Sharma. The lead heroine in the movie is Warina Hussain. When asked about this, the actor responds with an explanation about the same.
Loveratri is a love story set in the backdrop of Gujarat. This is going to be Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma’s debut film in Bollywood. This movie is from Salman’s home production only and hence this movie has gained more popularity. However, a person named Sudhir Kumar Ojha filed a complaint against Salman Khan in a Bihar court alleging that the film’s title hurts Hindu sentiments. He also mentioned that it is demeaning the festival of Navratri.
In his complaint, Sudhir Kumar accused that the makers of Loveratri are promoting vulgarity and denigrating Goddess Durga. The film is set to release on October 5, 2018. This is the day when Navratri will begin this year, Ojha said the film will hurt the Hindu sentiments. He filed the complaint against Salman Khan under IPC sections 295(injuring or defiling place of worship), 298 (uttering words with deliberate intent to wound religious feelings), 153 (want only giving provocation with intent to cause riot), 153B (assertions, imputations prejudicial to national integration) and 120(B) (criminal conspiracy).
When Salman Khan was asked to comment on this complaint filed against Loveratri at the recently held Bigg Boss 12 launch, he shut it down by saying, “Some people, I don’t know who they are, have some problem with the title of the film. It is a beautiful title. There is nothing more beautiful than love, so it is called Loveratri. It is not demeaning any culture. Our prime minister is from that culture. So, when you play a character like I played a Sardar in a film or I played a Haryanvi in ‘Sultan’, I do it with a lot of respect. We are making the film with Navaratri in the backdrop. We have made this beautiful film celebrating the music, colour, love and the fun of the festive season. We don’t need any publicity like that. Once the film is released those people will know there is nothing.The censor board is the right body to decide. I am sure it will get a ‘U’ certificate. And if the censor board has given the certificate then I don’t think anybody has the right to say anything.”
