Based on the reviews and the looming legal troubles, the makers of Khaali Peeli are now contemplating rewriting the lyrics of the song Beyonce Sharma Jayegi. As per the daily’s report, it is easier and convenient for the makers to just rewrite the lyrics, so as to stay away from any legal trouble over copyright infringement issues and also the wide backlash the just released song is receiving.
The daily quoted a source from the production house as saying :
“In a pre-emptive move, the makers are now planning to rewrite the song to avoid legal repercussions. A final call is going to be taken this week. With the dance number being called out for racism, it will be an unwise move to take on an international star like Beyoncé, especially at a time when the Black Lives Matter movement has set the stage for equality.”
The song is creating a lot of buzz since its release on Monday. The reaction to the song was not quite what was expected by the makes of the song. The song drew the ire of most people on social media who thought that the song was both racist and sexist. Some social media users also pointed out that this was just another frivolous Bollywood number. Some said the lead stars Ananya Panday and Ishaan Khatter lack any chemistry between them
