Soon filmmakers will commit suicide like farmers: ‘Muzzaffarnagar’ director

Muzaffarnagar-The-Burning-Love-Story

Mumbai, Nov 12: “Muzaffarnagar: The Burning Love” director Harish Kumar says his film is facing problems over its release in Muzaffarnagar district in Uttar Pradesh. He feels that if such cases go on, then filmmakers will also start committing suicide like farmers.

“Muzaffarnagar: The Burning Love”, which is based on the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots, is slated for release on November 17.

“A farmer without rain and government support is forced to commit suicide. Exactly the same thing is happening in the film industry with filmmakers. No one had any issues during the filming or censor clearance or during the promotion,” Kumar told IANS.

“But when it is time for the film to release, anti-social elements have come forward to suppress creative media. There is no other option for filmmakers but to commit suicide. I feel like doing the same,” Kumar added.

Further giving example of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmavati”, Kumar said that filmmakers are “soft targets and they have always been so”.

He said: “Filmmakers are the only ones who are courageous enough to show real adverse effects of communal riots… It is art and one needs to see it that way.

“Censor board saw the film and if there was anything wrong they would have stopped the release, but who are these people who are trying to stop the film? If that is the case, why do we even have the censor board? Is it for namesake?”

Talking about problems with the release in Muzzaffarnagar, Kumar said: “There are rumours that people are trying to ‘ban’ the film. If it is released there, then there will be problems. Earlier we sent poster and standees but theatre owners are hesitant, though no one has openly admitted to having issues. But I am told they are being forced not to show my film.”

The film was earlier titled ‘LoveRatri’

“An FIR was lodged on Friday against Salman Khan and six others including Aayush Sharma, Warina Hussain, director Abhiraj K. Minawala, Ram Kapoor and Ronit Roy in Mithanpura police station following the order of the court,” police station officer-in-charge Vijay Prasad Rai told IANS.

Rai said that the case was lodged against Salman and others in pursuance of an order passed by the court of Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate last week.

The court has passed the order on the complaint of an advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha.

In the complaint, Ojha has claimed that the title of the movie made fun of the holy festival of Navaratri. He also alleged that the promos of the movie suggested that it contained vulgarity and could hurt the sentiments of Hindus.

“I am happy that a case has been lodged against Salman and others for playing with a popular festival and sentiments of people,” Ojha said.

Earlier this week, Salman had announced on Twitter that the movie’s title has been changed from “Loveratri” to “Love Yatri”. The film is slated to open on October 5.
