Salman Khan decided to rename the title Loveratri to avoid hurting Hindu sentiments

Facing the dispute over the title Loveratri, the film maker Salman Khan decided to alter its name to Loveyatri instead of Loveratri. The reason is he doesn't want to wound the sentiments of citizens. Besides, Salman Khan hopes to provide audiences with a romantic love, not a dissatisfied story.

On Wednesday, as a part of the film's promotion, a musical festival was organized to celebrate the movie Loveyatri's journey. In addition to Salman Khan's presence, there was an important attendance of two main actors at the event: the male artist Aayush Sharma, and actress Warina Hussain. Other attendees included actor Ronit Roy, musician Tanishk Bagchi, two male playback singers Udit Narayan, and Darshan Rawal, the female playback singer Palak Muchhal, and rapper Badshah.

The organization VHP claimed the name Loveratri conveyed the sense of Navratri festival improperly

The movie's original title is Loveratri, a combination of love and Navratri, a Hindu religious celebration. This name made the organization Vishwa Hindu Parishad (abbreviated VHP), an Indian right-wing Hindu nationalist organization, angry. They alleged that the title Loveratri misrepresented the Navratri festival's sense.

As a result, an FIR was officially filed with a Bihar court against the maker Salman Khan. It claimed that Loveratri is an offensive word and breaks religious sentiments. Eventually, Salman Khan determined to replace the initial name with the new one, Loveyatri.

Regarding the name change, Salman said that when they initially decided to choose the title Loveratri, they thought it was a really nice one and contained no negative meaning.

The main backdrop of the film is a Navratri festival in Gujarat. If people realized that the early title is "offensive", they would give it a new one, he shared. With a wish to create a romance, not a hateful narrative, they hope that viewers' sentiments won't be hurt. If everybody still complains about the latter name, they will premiere the nameless movie.

The significance of the latest title is the journey of love

Explaining the significance of the latest name, Loveyatri's producer confides that love is a trip. There are many people finding long-distance voyages in love while others can only make short excursions. And if you feel unfortunate in your travel, you are still in luck because it is better than nothing.

The director of the film is Abhiraj Minawala. The main cast includes actor Ayush Sharma, Salman's brother-in-law, a completely new face in Bollywood, and actress Warina Hussain.

The movie will be officially released on October 5.
