Days before its scheduled release, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has tweaked the title of his upcoming Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh starrer.
Ramleela will now be called Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-leela.
The Bombay High Court has issued a notice to Bhansali on a petition which claims that the title of his forthcoming film Ramleela "hurts Hindu sentiments" but declined to stay the release of the movie scheduled for November 15.
A division bench of Justices V M Kanade and M S Sonak stated that if there was any merit in the petition, then an appropriate order can be passed later.
The court also issued notices to co-producer Kishore Lulla, the Central Board of Film Certification, Ministry and Information and Broadcasting, distribution rights holder Eros International and the government of Maharashtra.
Petitioner Sandeep Shukla is a member of the Congress party and vice president of the Shree Maharashtra Ramleela Mandal, which organises the Ramleela performance
