Days after changing the title of the film “Loveratri” to “Love Yatri”, another case has been lodged against Bollywood actor-producer Salman Khan and others associated with his upcoming home production in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur.
“An FIR was lodged on Friday against Salman Khan and six others including Aayush Sharma, Warina Hussain, director Abhiraj K. Minawala, Ram Kapoor and Ronit Roy in Mithanpura police station following the order of the court,” news agency IANS quoted police station officer in-charge Vijay Prasad Rai as saying.
The complaint has been filed by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha.
In the complaint, Ojha has claimed that the title of the movie made fun of the holy festival of Navaratri. He also alleged that the promos of the movie suggested that it contained vulgarity and could hurt the sentiments of Hindus.
“I am happy that a case has been lodged against Salman and others for playing with a popular festival and sentiments of people,” Ojha said.
Earlier, a court in Bihar has asked the police to lodge an FIR against Salman Khan and the cast of ‘Loveratri’ team after a religious organization taken an offense to the title.
Following the complaint, Salman took it to his social media handle to make an announcement regarding changing the title of the film. He wrote: “This is not a spelling mistake… #loveyatri #lovetakesover…”
Directed by Abhiraj Minawala, this movie is slated to release on 5th October.
