Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma is all set to make his big debut with the film Loveratri. Produced by none-other-than Salman Khan, the film is also launching actress Warina Hussain as the lead actress. As the trailer of the film suggests, this romantic drama is set against the backdrop of Navratri in Gujarat. While Aayush Sharma is a Garba teacher in Baroda, he falls in love with NRI Warina Hussain.
Released by Salman Khan, the trailer of Loveratri seemed to be quite colorful and promising. However, social media went into a frenzy over the silly mistakes in the trailer which resulted in the creation of hilarious memes on Loveratri. Evidently, the entire cast is in full swing promoting the film for its nationwide release on October 5. But according to sources, the Salman Khan production has unexpectedly hit a roadblock before its release.
Reportedly, a court in Muzaffarpur, Bihar has given orders to the police to file an FIR against the producer of Loveratri, Salman Khan and seven other members of the cast including the leads. Well, the reason for the complaint is quite shocking.
The FIR has been filed against the film because of a complaint filed by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha in the court suggesting that the title and the contents of the film have hurt the Hindu sentiment. Mithanpura police station was directed by the Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate (East) Shailendra Rai to file the FIR on the film’s team.
The complaint was filed under IPC section 298 (uttering words etc. with deliberate intent to wound the religious feelings of any person), 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class), 153 (wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot), 120B (criminal conspiracy), and 153B (imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integrity).
While Ojha says that the film that is scheduled to release during the holy festival of Navaratri can hurt the Hindu sentiments because the title of the film is meant to make fun of the Hindu festival. Ojha has expressed his discontent after watching the promos of the film as he said that they contained a lot of vulgarity.
Well, it seems like all is not well in the wonderland for the makers of the film Loveratri. Watch the trailer for the film here and decide for yourself:
What do you think? Is it really offensive?
