Salman Khan SHUTS DOWN the Loveratri controversy
When asked about the same at a recent event, Salman Khan told, “Some people, I don’t know who they are, have some problem with the title of the film. It is a beautiful title. There is nothing more beautiful than love, so it is called Loveratri. It is not demeaning any culture. Our prime minister is from that culture. So, when you play a character like I played a Sardar in a film or I played a Haryanvi in ‘Sultan’, I do it with a lot of respect. “We are making the film with Navaratri in the backdrop. We have made this beautiful film celebrating the music, colour, love and the fun of the festive season. So, we don’t need any publicity like that. Once the film is released those people will know there is nothing.”
He further added, “The censor board is the right body to decide. I am sure it will get a ‘U’ certificate. And if the censor board has given the certificate then I don’t think anybody has the right to say anything.”
