'Housefull 2' in troubled waters over 'Anarkali'
Followign the trend of the present times, we often see objections being raised against certain scenes or songs in upcoming films. Recently Rahman's Hosanna song from "Ek Deewana Tha" make headlines for its controversial lyrics. Now Sajid Nadiadwala’s forthcoming film "Housefull 2" Hit song number 'Anarkali Disco Chali…' has landed in trouble with the lyrics used in the song.
It's been said that the Maharashtra wing of the NGO, Bharatiya Bhrashtachar Nivaran Sanstha has raised objections against the item song, 'Anarkali Disco Chali... '
The reason behind this objection is that the NGO feels the line, 'Oye hoye chod chaad ke apne Saleem ki gali, Anarkali disco chali... ' from the song could have a negative impact on children as it spreads wrong information and distorts history.
The Maharashtra President of the NGO, Sameer Rai, says that Saleem, according to the Indian history, is the son of Mughal emperor Akbar, while the song makes you wonder why Saleem stayed in a gali (passage) or why Anarkali (Saleem's love interest according to history) went to a disco. Sameer plans to file a PIL against the song on Monday, once the court opens after a three-day break.
Earlier Sameer tried to talk with Producer Sajid,but his phone was hanged up many time.Now he is planing to file a PIL against the song on Monday.
"Before filing the case on Monday, we will send a legal notice to Nadiadwala. We want the lyrics of Anarkali… to be changed or else we will request the court to stop the release. We can’t allow people to misrepresent our past."Rai Says.
Anarkali disco Chali..., is filmed in a nightclub and stars Malaika Arora Khan, Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Riteish Deshmukh among others dancing to it.The film releases on April 5.
