Salman Khan’s next production ‘Loveratri’ has landed in a spot of trouble with objections against the film’s title.
The film, which will see the launch of his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma and newcomer Warina Hussain, will be hitting cinemas next month. However, before its release, the film has been slapped with a defamation suit.
Mumbai Mirror reports that advocate Ajaykumar Waghmare has moved the Bombay High Court claiming the film’s title hurts the sentiments of Hindus.
Responding to this, Khan was cited saying, “Some people, I don’t know who they are, have some problem with 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,” he said. “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 festive season. We don’t need any publicity like that. Once the film is released those people will know there is nothing.”
‘Loveratri’ releases on 5th October 2018.
