    The real life parents of Yuvraaj Parashar, one of two lead characters, have initiated legal action to disown him because of the shame arising from the film, claiming to "not want to see his face even in death". This came despite Parashar winning acclaim from Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra Chhagan Bhujbal for his sensitive portrayal of gay men.

    Furthermore, the lovemaking scene between Parashar and Kapil Sharma is facing censorship. Sharma said: "Why should the censors be scandalised if two men are kissing and making love? The ones in my film are very aesthetic. And so what if it’s two men making love? Love is love regardless of gender."
