The PIL, filed by an organisation called Sanatan Foundation, urged the court to get the film's producers to change the title and remove the content that hurts the sentiments of Hindus, as an alternative to a ban.
An advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha filed a complaint in a Bihar court against Salman Khan and others associated with his next home production Loveratri, alleging that the title of the film hurts Hindu sentiments by deriding the festival of Navaratri.
Salman Khan, at the Bigg Boss launch event, shared his view on the objections raised against the title of Loveratri. He said the Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain starrer has Navaratri in its backdrop and celebrates music, colour, and fun of the festival.
Loveratri trailer: The trailer of Salman Khan’s production venture Loveratri is out. The Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain starrer looks like another Bollywood romantic drama peppered with upbeat music and dance moves that will be imitated by the youth across the country.
"We will not let the movie be released here in Vadodara if they continue with the same name. We do not have an issue with the movie, but the name of the movie is a disregard for the Hindu culture," said Tejas Brahmbhatt, spokesperson, Shiv Sena Vadodara.
