Loveyatri, produced by Salman Khan, has found itself in the eye of a storm.

Initially named Loveratri, Salman changed the film's name, as Hindu outfits protested saying that it was an insult to the sacred festival of Navratri. However, changing the name didn't appease the outfits either, as they asserted that it sounded similar to Navratri, and that was unacceptable to them.

A FIR was registered against Salman and six others at Meethanpura police station in Muzaffarpur, Bihar, on the charges of hurting the sentiments of the Hindus.

The FIR 359/18 was registered on Friday afternoon (September 21) on the order of the Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate (SDJM) court of Shailendra Rai, after hearing a complaint filed by local advocate Sudhir Ojha on September 12.

Following this, the court directed the police to register an FIR against Salman Khan, his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma, who is the lead actor in the film along with actress Warina Hussain.

In the middle of this controversy, Salman had changed the film's title. However, the Hindu groups were still angry.

The complainant pleaded that the film's title hurt Hindu sentiments by ridiculing the festival of Navratri and promotes vulgarity.

"We have filed an FIR against Salman Khan and others on the directions of the court. We will investigate the matter and take necessary action," said Vijay Kumar Rai, SHO Meethanpura police station.

Advocate Sudhir Ojha in his complaint had also maintained that the film's previous name Lovaratri, denigrated Goddess Durga.

The complaint was filed in the court against Salman and the rest under section 295(injuring or defiling place of worship), 298 (uttering words with deliberate intent to hurt religious sentiments), 153 (provoke with intent to cause riots), 153(B) (assertions prejudicial to national integrity) and 120(B) (criminal conspiracy)of Indian penal code.

Apart from this, the Gujarat High Court issued notices to the production house, Salman Khan Films (SKF), Gujarat Government and the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), following a PIL, filed by Hindu outfits. The respondents have been asked to file detailed replies and the next hearing is scheduled for September 27.

Loveyatri, starring Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain, directed by Abhiraj Minawal, will hit the screens on October 5.
