The second song from the soundtrack of the upcoming movie Khaali Peeli, Tehas Nehas, has been launched. The video options lead stars Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Pandey dancing in a storage. Shortly after its launch, the video started attracting noticeably unfavourable reactions, with the dislikes eclipsing the likes by a large margin.
Composed and produced by Vishal-Shekhar, the song has been written by Kumaar, and options vocals by Shekhar and Prakriti Kakar. The video reveals Ishaan and Ananya’s characters grooving collectively, with a number of taxicabs parked round them. They seem to be inside a storage, however one and not using a roof, as a result of in direction of the top of the video, it begins raining.
Previously, the primary song from the movie — Beyonce Sharma Jayegi — was roundly criticised on-line for racist undertones. The lyrics of the song, written by Kumaar and Raj Shekhar, appeared to counsel that Beyonce — a Black lady — can be surprised if confronted by a fair-skinned lady. A number of days later, the song’s title was modified to Beyonse Sharma Jayegi.
Director Maqbool Khan had commented on the controversy. “First, without any hesitation or excuses we want to apologise to anyone offended. We assure you that the lyric in question was never intended racially. In fact, the term ‘goriya’ has been so often and traditionally used in Indian songs to address a girl, that it didn’t occur to any of us to interpret it in the literal manner,” he stated in an announcement. Kumaar added, “Goriya as a word has been used in many Hindi songs earlier. Our idea was to simply use a synonym to ‘girl’. There is no derogation intended – we revere beauty of global celebrity Beyoncé and don’t mean to hurt any of her fans.”
