Saregama to change the lyrics of Sunny Leone`s song Madhuban after outrage

Sunny Leone`s song Madhuban released over five days ago and the number was mired in a massive controversy. The song was slammed for hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus. 

Last week, a section of priests in Vridavan had expressed objection over the video. Akhil Bhartiya Tirth Purohit Mahasabha of Vrindavan has now extended its demand and has sought action against people behind the video produced by music label Saregama. The label has now issued a statement on its social media account that reads- “In light of the recent feedback & respecting the sentiments of our fellow countrymen, we will be changing the lyrics & the name of the song Madhuban.”

The producer, director, and financer should also be booked for the “offense”, Mahesh Pathak, the body’s national president said. Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra too demanded an apology from Leone and the song’s singers Shaarib and Toshi threatening them with “action”. The minister alleged that the video hurt religious sentiments of Hindus.

Two Hindu right-wing outfits in Mathura tried to burn an effigy of Sunny Leone accusing her of “indecent dance” and hurting their religious sentiments in a music video, police said on December 26. The incident took place on December 25 when the activists belonging to the two bodies tried to burn the actor’s effigy objecting over song “Madhuban”. The song shares a few words of its lyrics with the iconic ‘Madhuban mein Radhika naache re’ song from 1960 film ‘Kohinoor’.

The activists belonging to ‘Srikrishna Sena Sangathan’ and ‘Yuva Brahmin Mahasabha’ were stopped in the act with the assurance of an FIR in the matter, a police officer said. No FIR was lodged in the matter till late Sunday evening. During their protest, when the activists could not burn the effigy, they crushed it under their feet.

“On the assurance of action against the actor and producers, the plan of burning the effigy was withdrawn,” Sanjiv Singh Baba, national president, Srikrishna Sena Sangathan said.
