The upcoming film ‘Satya Narayana Ki Katha’ starring Bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan is making headlines. Following religious organizations’ objections to the film’s title, it has now been decided to modify its name. On Saturday night, the film’s director, Sameer Vidwans, published this information on Twitter and Instagram.
As soon as director and actor Kartik Aryan shared the post containing the name of their upcoming movie, social media erupted with uproars, hurting religious sentiments. Even many users vowed to boycott the movie, while some religious groups lodged FIR against the makers of the films.
The movie stars Kartik Aryan and Shraddha Kapoor.

Director informs Satya Narayana Ki Katha name change
‘The decision to modify the film’s name was made with the injured feelings of the people in mind,’ he wrote. ‘The title of a picture is something that arises organically during the creative process,’ the director stated on his official Twitter account. To prevent offending anyone, we’ve chosen to modify the title of our newly announced film to ‘Satya Narayana Ki Katha.’ This choice has the full approval of the film’s producers and creative team. Along our trip, we will shortly unveil a new title for our love tale.
Actor Kartik Aaryan also shared this photo on his official Instagram account. Last month, the actor posted a motion picture on Instagram with the title of the film. The film’s title was also formally confirmed at the same time. On Instagram, the actor posted a photo of the poster with the caption, “Satya Narayana Ki Katha is a narrative that has a special place in my heart. A unique film with unique characters.”
Sameer Vidwans, a National Award winner, will helm the film. His film ‘Anandi Gopal’ received a lot of positive feedback from critics. The film has been dubbed a “great love story” by Nadiadwala. The film is being produced by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and Namah Pictures, and Nadiadwala said in a statement that it is very important to him. Kartik Aaryan will play the lead in the film. Vidvans makes his Bollywood debut with this film.
At the same time, Aryan stated that he could not have gotten a finer team than ‘Satyanarayana Ki Katha,’ because it brings together so many ‘powerful’ people. He admitted that he is under pressure because he is the team’s lone member who has yet to get the National Award.
Karthik was last seen in the film ‘Love Aaj Kal,’ which was released last year. Sara Ali Khan played Kartik’s love interest in the film. Karthik was announced to be out of the film Dostana 2 at the start of this year. Karthik was accompanied by Janhvi Kapoor and Lakshya in this flick. With this film, Lakshya made his Bollywood debut. Fans were ecstatic to see Karthik in this film, but when the news broke, everyone was stunned.
