Radha, the out-and-out peppy number from Karan Johar’s recently released movie has managed to hurt religious sentiments
The song from Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year that features the three newbies Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra was glittering with all its might and climbing up the list of chartbusters very rapidly…until it hit a roadblock. It stirred up a legal controversy.
So what gives? According to the buzz the Hindu Janjagriti Samiti (HJS) has staged a protest in Goa against the use of the word ‘sexy’ to describe Radha, a Hindu deity, in the song. Also, a voluntary organisation in Indore has filed a case against Karan Johar, singer Shreya Ghoshal, producer Gauri Khan, music directors Vishal Shekhar, singer Udit Narayan, lyricist Anvita Dutta and Sony Music Company, among others. And we are told an order was issued against the makers by the Court of Judicial Magistrate Santosh Prasad Shukla.
