The move comes after a legal defamation notice was sent to writers, directors, and producers of the film on Monday for “spreading misconceptions about Lord Ram and making a derogatory, defamatory, objectionable portrayal in favor of Ravana” through some dialogues in the trailer, the title and tagline of the film.
The official Twitter handle of Pen India Limited posted a statement that read, “Every film, for us, is a story to connect with our audience, keep them entertained & not hurt any sentiments. Keeping this in mind, we are changing the title to #Bhavai, the story of the art & the artist! Looking forward to telling you this story in cinemas on 1st October.”
Bhavai also stars Aindrita Ray, Rajendra Gupta, Rajesh Sharma, and Abhimanyu Singh in pivotal roles.
Presented by Dr. Jayantilal Gada (Pen Studios), produced by Dhaval Jayantilal Gada, Aksshay Jayantilal Gada, Parth Gajjar, and Hardik Gajjar films in association with Backbencher Pictures, the film is set to release in cinemas on 1 October.
