The movie is currently named ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’ and Sharma has requested to change the name of the movie to just ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela’ and emit ‘Ram Leela’. The petitioner has also urged the National Board of Film Certification not to allow certificate for public exhibition of the movie, under sections 4, 5, and 5-A of the Cinematograph Act, 1952.

The petitioner stated that the matter is related to the sentiments of people from the state and the word ‘Ram-Leela’ is completely contrary to what the movie is about, which is presented in the promotional advertisement.

Sharma added that she has watched the trailer of the movie and has found many objectionable dialogues and scenes. She went on to say that they are not only vulgar, rude and offensive, but also degrade the religious feeling of the Hindus.
