Loveratri, a Salman Khan Films production, has flashed a controversy even before its release. The film is debuting his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma and seems to be on highlights because of all wrong reasons.
From two weeks now, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has been intimidating the superstar over the name of the film. According to Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Loveratri is misrepresenting the name of Navaratri, one of the most important Hindu festival. Another organization Hindu Hi Aage has recently joined the protest announcing a reward to anyone who thrashes Salman. The Agra unit head of the organization, Govind Parashar, declared a reward of Rs2 lakh to whoever thrashes the actor in public. The Hindu Hi Aage leader further enticed to the Censor Board to ban the film.
‘Loveratri’, which is said to have a setting of Gujarat, is slated to be released on October 5 this year, around the same time when Navaratri would be celebrated. The 52-year-old star, Salman Khan took to Twitter in December last year to make the announcement of the project, which will be the fifth film under his banner, Salman Khan Films.
Well, let’s see how long and grave the protest for the movie goes on.
