Production company Eros shared ‘sexual and controversial’ posts on the occasion of Navratri. The post featured Salman Khan, Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif with double meaning quotes connected to Navratri. As a result, people started to slam Eros Now and its CEO Ali Hussein.
The tweet that featured Ranveer reads, “Be naughty, sweet toh mithai bhi hai #Navratri #dandiya,” while the picture featured the actor was captioned, “Let’s have some majama in my pyjama.” On the other hand, the tweet where the picture featuring Katrina Kaif was shared was captioned, “Do you want to put the ‘ratri’ in my Navratri?’ After social media started to trend boycott Eros Now, the production company issued a public statement.
It said, “To all those concerned, We at Eros love and respect our cultures equally. It is not and it has never been, our intentions to hurt anyone’s emotions. We have deleted the concerned posts and we apologise for having offended anybody’s sentiments.”
