After the launch of ‘Loveratri’ trailer, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and few other groups opposed the film’s title as it would hurt Hindu sentiments.
Earlier, Bihar’s Muzzafarpur court ordered to file an FIR against Salman Khan and seven other actors after a complaint was filed by an advocate against him and his production ‘Loveratri’ alleging that the title of the film hurts Hindu sentiments.
Sources close to the development shared, “Taking into consideration the concerns from the Censor Board and sensitivity of Karni Sena towards the title of the film, the makers decided to release the film as LoveYatri.”
LoveYatri is set against the backdrop of Gujarat and the onscreen couple’s love story unfolds over the span of the festival of Navratri.
‘LoveYatri’ is written by Naren Bhatt, directed by Abhiraj Minawala, and is produced by Salman Khan. The movie is slated to release on 5th October 2018.
