Abhishek Kapoor's 'Kedarnath' seems to be following the same route as Bhansali's 'Padmaavat' tread in 2017. 'Kedarnath', starring Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput, is a love story set against the backdrop of catastrophic floods that had almost destroyed the pilgrim town in 2013. Ever since the trailer and teaser of the film hit the web, priests from the shrine-town have been wildly protesting against the film, saying that it is a case of 'love jihad', as the two lead characters belong to different faiths. Sara plays a Hindu girl who falls in love with a Muslim boy played by Sushant.

Since time immemorial, Bollywood has showcased inter-faith love stories; here is a look at some of those films.
