Phooldol Behari Dass Maharaj, a Hindu saint in his presidential address at a mahapanchayat of Hindu saints at Barsana village on Monday,asked the producer of the movie to change the title else they wont allow the shoot of the movie in the Braj region. Eminent visionaries of Vrindavan went Barsana to attend this mahapanchayat.
“We would not allow shooting if the title is not changed,” warned the mahant. Another mahant Swami Adityanath Maharaj added, “Even the Muslim community cooperates with Hindus in safeguarding the custom and tradition of Braj.”
Narain Singh, the director of the movie, who addressed the media in Mathura later in the day, refuted allegations that his movie would hurt religious sentiments of the Hindus. He said, “We are shooting scenes in Nandgaon and Barsana but every doubt would be cleared with release of movie as nowhere the name of Nandgaon has been used in it. The movie is on women’s empowerment and ‘Swachhta’ and Barsana is chosen for communicating this message through ‘lath-maar’ Holi since Mughal period.”
