Makers of Pratik Gandhis Bhavai issue a clarification amidst controversy 

Actor Pratik Gandhi's Bollywood debut project is facing controversy regarding its subject matter which seems to be offensive for a particular social group. Amidst backlash, the title of the film was changed from 'Raavan Leela' to 'Bhavai' few days ago. However, there's still a roaring demand to ban the film on social media. About a week after changing the title of the film, makers have issued yet another statement clarifying that the film is a fictional story and it isn't targeted at any social group.

The statement read, "Our film 'BHAVAI' is a fictional love glory of two individuals, Raja Ram Joshi (Pratik Gandhi) and Rani (Aindrita Ray) working in a drama company and how their life changes off stage. The film promo was released under the title. 'Raavan Leela' as the protagonist is a drama actor who plays the role of Raavan in the drama. With due respect to the concerns regarding the title of the promo and dialogue in the promo, we wish to clarify that the dialogue and the above title 'Raavan Leela' is not part of the film and has been removed from the promo as well respecting the sentiments of our viewers."

It further read, "We have the highest regard for Hindu culture and the Ramayana. The Film and/or any portion thereof does not hurt any religious sentiments or religious beliefs. The film 'Bhavai' has been approved and passed by the Censor Board of Film Certification under the 'U' category."
