Salman Khan's Production 'Loveratri' Lands in Trouble Over its Name, Advocates File Petition

A Mumbai lawyer has filed a petition before the Aurangabad Bench of Bombay High Court against Salman Khan's production 'Loveratri' saying it projects the Hindu religion and all womanhood in a derogatory manner.

The petitioner, advocate Ajaykumar Waghmare, has alleged that the release of the film in and around the period of Navratri is clearly sacrilegious in its intention.

The title of the said movie has intentionally affected the standing of Hindus and Hinduism adversely whereas the respondents (i.e. filmmakers) have used this name only for their pecuniary interest…By its title, the respondents seek to portray Navratri as only a festival full of lewdness and amorousness,” the petitioner said.

The advocate further alleges that whatever is being shown in the movie trailers is nothing but an attempt to damage the reputation and image of the Hindu religion and all womanhood.

The petitioner has, thus, prayed that the word 'Loveratri' be dropped as the film's title and the scenes in the movie, which he said, were an attempt to tarnish the image of Hindu religion and all womanhood be removed.

Further, the petitioner has also prayed that the filmmakers be directed to issue an unconditional apology to all Hindus and all women.

It is not the first time that the film Loveratri has been in trouble, as the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) has also objected to the title of the film.

The movie is set to release on October 5 and stars Ayush Sharma and Warina Hussain in lead roles.
