A group of Muslims in Hyderabad has lodged a complaint with the police against expressions of actor Priya Prakash Varrier in a song in Malayalam film ‘ Odu Adaar Love ’ that is to be released soon.
Priya Varrier’s expressions in the song ‘ Manikya Malaraya Poovi ’ have become hugely popular on the social media.
The complainants have claimed that the picturisation of the song is objectionable because its lyrics are linked to the Prophet’s life.
In a written complaint to the Falaknuma police, the group said the picturisation of the song has hurt the sentiments of the Muslim community.
The complaint was filed with signatures of at least 57 people with their telephone numbers, and addresses provided to the police. “It is not acceptable for us to see a romantic song picturised on some actors with lyrics of the song linked to the Prophet,” Mohd Abdul, an engineering student in Hyderabad who lodged the complaint with the police told TOI.
