Currently the  Mumbai film industry seems  to be under a  lot  of  pressure  from radical elements. We hear  characters  in Hindi cinema  will not  be named  after deities and  titles with even a hint of  religion or  mythology  are to be  avoided.

 The  latest casualty of this  blanket ban is  Sameer  Vidwans’s forthcoming project Satyanarayan Ki Katha which sources say  was  a sweet innocent  love story about a hero named Satyanarayan to be played by Kartik Aaryan  .

“It had  nothing to with  the pauranic(mythological) Satyanarayan. Yet  producer  Sajid Nadiadwala and director Sameer Vidwans started  receiving  threats  from  Hindu radical outfits.Producer Nadiadwala did not  want to take  any risks. He decided to  change  the title,” says  a source.

The  new  title  will be announced in a week’s time.

 Sameer moves to  his  pan-India  project with a surge of emotions. “I am nervous  and anxious. I am also curious to know  where the journey will take me. I have been working on the script of Satyanarayan  Ki Katha  with my  writer  Karan  Sharma for  almost two  years.When I  narrated  the  script to  Kartik Aaryan he was  most excited. Then I narrated  it Sajid Nadidawala. He  too loved it. It’s very encouraging to see such huge  commercial names being so  passionate  about a different  kind of  love story.”

 Sameer says  Satyanarayan  Ki Katha is a love story with a very tender innocent heart. “Just  like Anandi Gopal which has been  universally liked. I am surprised that even today more than two  years after  it release  I meet people who  are seeing Anandi Gopal on Zee5 and getting deeply moved  by it.”
