Gaurav had uploaded the video on YouTube on November 9 which was deleted later after priests protested against the shooting of a film inside the "holy" place.

Likewise, a case has been registered in Vrindavan police station under section 295A of the IPC and section 66 of the IT Act following a complaint by Rohit Goshwami, the priest of Nidhivan Raj.
