Bihar court orders FIR against Salman Khan and others associated with ‘Loveyatri’ for hurting Hindu sentiments

Muzaffarpur: An FIR was lodged here Friday against Bollywood actor Salman Khan and others associated with his upcoming home production “Loveratri”, the title of which was changed to “Loveyatri” a few days ago. The case was lodged at the Mithanpura police station here in pursuance of an order passed by Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate (East) Shailendra Rai on September 12.

The court had passed the order on the complaint of an advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha who had alleged that the title of the movie made fun of the holy festival of Navaratri. He had also alleged that the promos of the movie suggested that it contained vulgarity and could hurt sentiments. Khan – who is producing the movie slated for release on October 5 – had announced on Twitter a few days ago that the movie’s title has been changed from “Loveratri” to “Loveyatri”.

Besides Salman, those named in the FIR are lead pair Ayush Sharma and Vareena Hussain, director Abhiram Minawala and character artistes Ram Kapoor and Ronit Roy, Mithanpura SHO Vijay Rai said.
