Superstar Salman Khan who is launching his brother-in-law in Bollywood with the film “Loveratri” has recently made an announcement. Quite a few hours ago, the actor took to his Instagram handle to share a new poster and a new title of the film. Writing the caption “This is not a spelling mistake...#loveyatri #lovetakesover...@skfilmsofficial @aaysharma@warinahussain @tseries.official@abhiraj88”, Salman did not specify any reason behind changing the title.
Produced under “Salman Khan Films” banner, “Loveyatri” is set against the backdrop of Navratri. It is also the debut film of Warina Hussain while Ram Kapoor and Ronit Roy also play pivotal roles in Loveyatri. The film has been shot in Gujarat and London.
According to the latest reports the reason behind the change in the title is said to be the FIR filed against Salman and the cast of the film. However, months ago, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) protested against the film's title and alleged that it 'distorts the meaning of the Hindu festival.' Later, a petition was filed against the film. Also a court in Bihar asked the police to lodge an FIR against Salman Khan and the cast of Loveyatrion the basis of a complaint that the title and contents of the movie had hurt the Hindu sentiments.
The film is directed by Abhiraj Minawala and produced by Salman's mother Salma Khan. Loveyarti is also set to be release on October 5 this year.
