Reactions to Pasoori remake
Many Pakistani Twitter users have slammed Satyaprem Ki Katha makers for 'sacrificing another classic'. Some also said they hope 'this is a big fat lie'.
One tweeted, "What else can they (Bollywood) do??? Now they'll justify using a Punjabi song in a Gujarat-based movie." Satyaprem Ki Katha is set in Gujarat. A Pakistani Twitter user also said, "Bollywood just stay away from our precious Coke Studio (Pakistani music-based television programme and franchise)."
A person also said, "You (Satyaprem Ki Katha makers) are about to get so much hate for this, so don't do it! Already it's a bad era for Bollywood movies and music. Negative publicity is not fun anymore." A Twitter user also said, "No way! Save Pasoori from them. That's our song. Hope this is a big fat lie. Hate Kartik and Sajid. Hope this movie flops." One more said, "Another classic sacrificed (crying emoji)." A person also said, “Oh my God please don't. Pasoori is my absolute favourite don't ruin it please.”
About Satyaprem Ki Katha
Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by Sameer Vidwans, the romantic film reunites Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani after their 2022 hit Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Satyaprem Ki Katha will be released on June 29.
The film was earlier titled Satyanarayan Ki Katha, which translates to the story of Satyanarayan, which is another name for the Hindu God Vishnu. However, after backlash, it was renamed Satyaprem Ki Katha. In 2021, director Sameer Vidwans issued a statement to announce the change in title. Kartik had also said that the title was changed to avoid hurting sentiments.
