Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has changed the title of the movie his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain are starring in from Loveratri to Loveyatri. The title of the movie had met with opposition from some groups, who stated it hurt Hindu sentiments. Salman did not give a reason for the change when he put the new poster out on his Instagram page.
The objection to the title had started after the release of the trailer of the movie, with Vishwa Hindu Parishad and some other groups demanding that it be changed. A tweet from ANI had also read as follows: “Bihar’s Muzaffarpur Court gives orders to file FIR against Salman Khan and 7 other actors after a complaint was filed by an advocate against him and his production ‘Loveratri’ alleging the title of the film hurts Hindu sentiments.”
In the new poster that he posted on his Instagram page, Salman just captioned it as, “This is not a spelling mistake.” Take a look at the new poster.
At the launch of Bigg Boss 12, Salman had said, “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.”
“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,” he added.
Loveyatri has been directed by Abhiraj Minawala and produced by Salma Khan, and this will be the first movie for both Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain. The film will release on October 5, 2018.
