Filing the complaint in the court on September 6, Ojha had pleaded that the title of Loveratri hurts Hindu sentiments by ridiculing the festival of Navratri and promoting vulgarity.

Advocate Sudhir Ojha in his complaint had also pleaded that the name of the film Lovaratri, which is scheduled to hit the theatres on October 5, denigrates Goddess Durga.

The complaint against Salman and the others were filed 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 the Indian Penal Code.
