After staging massive protests against the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat, another protest has started by Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) against the release of Salman Khan Films’ upcoming movie Loveratri. This case has started by VHP saying that the movie is distorting the meaning of a Hindu festival. VHP’s international working president Alok Kumar said, ““We will not allow its exhibition in cinema halls in the country. We don’t want the sentiments of Hindus to be hurt.”
Speaking to the reporters he further said that “The film is set against the backdrop of Navratri, a Hindu festival, and the name distorts its meaning.” The movie is said to have a backdrop of Gujarat and will be released on 5th Oct this year, which is around the same time when Navratri will be celebrated. This is not the first time these things are happening; many other movies have also faced opposition by VHP and many other such organizations.
