Salman Khan showed off his singing talent on the sets of Indian Idol 10. The actor sang for the audience and the judges all along, and people couldn't stop grooving to his voice on the sets of the singing reality show.
The film was initially titled LoveRatri, but now the actor-producer Salman Khan had to change the title of his film LoveRatri to LoveYatri after a section of people complained, says the movie is a love story and not a hate story and so, they don't want to hurt people's sentiments.
The right-wing organisation Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) was irked by the earlier title LoveRatri, which according to them distorted the meaning of the Hindu festival, Navratri. Later, a Bihar court ordered an FIR to be lodged against co-producer Salman, saying the title hurts religious sentiments and promotes vulgarity. Makers of the film then changed the title of their film from "Loveratri" to LoveYatri.
Talking about why he renamed title of the film with IANS, Salman said: "When we gave that title to the film that time, we thought it's a really lovely title for the film and there is no negative connotation in that."
The 52-year-old actor further added: "This film is set in Gujarat during the festive time of Navratri. If any one person feels that it's an offensive title, we will change it. We don't want to hurt sentiments of people because we are making a love story not a hate story. If people have objection with current title of the film LoveYatri then, we will change that also and release this film as an untitled film."
Decoding the new title of the film, Salman said: "Love is a journey. There are people whose journey of love is long and there are people whose journey of love is short. I think even if a person is unlucky in love, he is still lucky because if you have short journeys in love then there is nothing better."
LoveYatri is directed by Abhiraj Minawala, the film is all set to hit the silver screen on October 5.
