Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is all set to launch his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma in the industry with the film Loveratri. Aayush Sharma will make his big break with debut actress Warina Hussain in the lead role. The film is a love story with the festive season of Navratri as the backdrop.
However, even before its release, Loveratri had to face some legal. Bihar court issued orders to the police to file an FIR against producer Salman Khan and the cast of the film including Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain.
The FIR was going to be filed against a complaint issued by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha implying that the title of the film was hurting Hindu sentiments as it was mocking the holy festival of Navratri. Following which Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and some other groups also expressed their objection over the title and content of the film Loveratri.
While they demanded the change in the name of the movie, they reasoned their demands saying that the title ‘Loveratri’ hurt the Hindu sentiments. While subduing to the demands of the Hindu protestors, producer Salman Khan has changed the name of the movie Loveratri to Loveyatri.
Releasing an official statement, Bollywood’s Bhaijaan took it to his Twitter account to announce the news of the change in name to Loveyatri. Have a read:

Padmavati became Padmavat and now #LoveRatri has become #LoveYatri. The right-wing Hindu “fringe” do seem to have a whole lot of power to make big Bollywood stars and production companies change their movie names and delete scenes.

Salman Khan fought legal battles for some 20 years over multiple criminal cases, couldn’t confess to his crimes, couldn’t do the right thing. But one puny little threat from Hindutva terrorists and #LoveRatri becomes #LoveYatri. Go to hell everyone. Come back when grow a spine.
