Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan starrer Kedarnath's teaser created much hype on the internet and boosted the excitement of the audience for the trailer.

Ahead of the grand trailer launch, the film has landed into one more controversy and this time for a very unusual and invalid reason.

BJP has demanded a ban on the film claiming that it is hurting Hindu sentiments and promoting Love Jihad.

The statement given by Ajendra Ajay, a member of Uttarakhand's media relations team states, "By setting a romantic love story against the backdrop of a huge tragedy that occurred at Kedarnath, a centre of faith for crores of Hindus, the filmmakers have shown great disrespect to the followers of the religion."

The BJP leader also said that the movie is promoting love jihad, stating that the film showed Kedarnath in a flippant manner, thus triggering "acute resentment among teertha purohits."

Ajay has also warned that if the ban is not imposed on the film, it will result in serious and large scale protests.

Kedarnath is directed by Abhishek Kapoor and produced by Pragya Kapoor and Ronnie Screwvala. The film is all set to hit the theatres on December 7 this year.
