Salman never fails to stay out from the news. He seems to be in trouble once again with a case being filed against him in Bihar.
A case has been lodged against Bollywood actor-producer Salman Khan and others associated with his upcoming home production Love Yatri, which was earlier titled Loveratri, in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur district following the order of the local court, police said.
“An FIR was lodged on Friday against Salman Khan and six others, including Aayush Sharma, Warina Hussain, director Abhiraj K. Minawala, Ram Kapoor and Ronit Roy, in Mithanpura police station following the order of the court,” police station officer-in-charge Vijay Prasad Rai informed.
The court has passed the order on the complaint of an advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha. In the complaint, Ojha has claimed that the title of the movie made fun of the holy festival of Navaratri. He also alleged that the promos of the movie suggested that it contained vulgarity and could hurt the sentiments of Hindus.
“I am happy that a case has been lodged against Salman and others for playing with a popular festival and sentiments of people,” Ojha said. Earlier this week, Salman had announced on Twitter that the movie’s title has been changed from Loveratri to Love Yatri.
The film is slated to open on October 5. Rai said that the case was lodged against Salman and others in pursuance of an order passed by the court of Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate last week.
This case is another example of rising extremism in India where Hindutva and Hindu nationalism is on the rise. We hope that Salman will safely navigate through this case and continue to impress the audience with his mesmerizing performances.
