Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma is all set to make his bollywood debut from the film ‘Loveratri’ opposite newcomer Warina Hussain.
But, the film has been embroiled in controversy due to it’s title. In May, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has issued a warning stating they will not allow screening of Loveratri as its name distorts the meaning of a Hindu festival.
Well now, Salman Khan finally reacts on the same. In an interview on the sidelines of Bigg Boss launch Salman said, “Some people, I don’t know who they are, have some problem with title of the film. It is a beautiful title. There is nothing more beautiful than love, so it is called ‘Loveratri’. It is not demeaning any culture. Our prime minister is from that culture. So, when you play a character, like I played a sardar in a film or I played a Haryanvi in ‘Sultan’, I do it with a lot of respect.”
“We are making the film with Navaratri in the backdrop. We have made this beautiful film celebrating the music, colour, love and the fun of festive season. We don’t need any publicity like that. Once the film is released those people will know there is nothing,” he added.
The 52-year-old actor said he is sure the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) will pass the film with a ‘U’ certificate. “The censor board is the right body to decide. I am sure it will get an ‘U’ certificate. And if the censor board has given the certificate than I don’t think anybody has the right to say anything.”
‘Loveratri’ is a love story set in Gujarat. The film is directed by debutant director Abhiraj Minawala (former assistant of director Ali Abbas Zafar) and produced by Salman Khan under the banner of Salman Khan Films.
The film is slated to release on October 5, 2018.
