New Delhi, News24 Bureau, May 31: There are just a few days left for the release of Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif starer Bharat and the movie is already in trouble. A PIL was filed against the movie by the Delhi High Court. According to the reports, the film is against the Section 3 of the Emblems and Names Act which is prohibiting the use of word 'Bharat' for any commercial use.The petition seeks a change in the title of the movie and also a particular dialogue where Salman Khan compares himself with the name of the country by calling himself Bharat and this has hurt the sentiments of the people.
Already the film is going with lots of controversies Priyanka Chopra opted out of the film to marry Nick Jonas. Salman Khan has still not gotten over this as he can be seen taking a dig at the actress at every media promotion.
At a press conference, Salman Khan said, "She, over Bharat, did choose USA in the 'nick' of time. She has worked so hard all her life, okay? And when she got the biggest film of her life, she dumped that film and got married. You know, hats off! Usually, people leave their husbands for a film like this."
World Cup is another hinderance as the day of the release of Bharat is clashing with an interesting match between India and South Africa.
The world cup will go on till 14th July. This will create a problem for Salman Khan and his movie Bharat.
Film critics feel due to World Cup matches the collection of Bharat may get affected. But then if it is a Salman Khan film and it is released around Eid then nothing can stop the joy-ride of the film. A Salman Khan film on Eid is a deadly combination. So it would be interesting to see the fate of Bharat and especially so when Salman Khan has urged his fans to come and watch the film along with the family.
