The internet has lately gone crazy about a girl who infectious smile and sultry wink has won hearts of millions of people across the country in a matter of just a few hours. The newest internet sensation and national crush, Priya Prakash Varrier is an 18-year-old girl whose video clip from a song shot for a south Indian film ‘Oru Adaar Love’ has gone insanely viral on the internet. In fact, the video has made Priya one of the top three celebs to gain so many followers on Instagram in a single day.
Owing to oodles of unexpected fame coming over to Priya, her parents had to send her to a hostel. Meanwhile, a new teaser of Priya Prakash Varrier’s film got released and social media just could not stop talking about her.
But eventually, Priya Prakash’s popularity has started creating troubles for her and her project. Recently, a group of Hyderabadi Muslim youth filed a police complaint against her song alleging that it hurt their religious sentiments.
And now, a Mumbai-based outfit has written to CBFC demanding a ban on the song. Raza Academy has written a letter to CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi alleging that the lyrics of Priya Prakash’s viral song contain “objectionable text mentioning the name of Islam’s Holy Prophet and His Wife”. The letter has called upon CBFC chief to “take measures to block the videos” and “take immediate and imminent action on culprits”.
Take a look at the letter written by Raza Academy to CBFC below:
However, the letter has raised the objection with lyrics of the song and not with Priya Prakash as such. Also, it is interesting to note that Mumbai’s Raza Academy’s name has been associated with a number of controversies in the past as well. Meanwhile, Omar Lulu, Director of ‘Oru Adaar Love’ has claimed that the song does not contain any objectionable content and that Muslims living in a part of Kerala have been singing it for over four decades.
