Makers of Khaali Peeli starring Ananya Panday and Ishaan Khatter have modified the song “Beyoncé Sharma Jayegi.” This song when it was initially launched about a week ago was grossly criticized by the netizens and created a flame because of the racist remarks in the song. The song became one of the trending topics on social media.
Thus the makers have tweaked the song however with not much difference in it. ‘Beyoncé Sharma Jayegi’ is now turned to “Duniya Sharma Jayegi’ and it seems that they are not bothered with the issue of why it faced criticism and what the outrage is all about. Artist Beyoncé has trademarked her name to avoid commercial use.
As per the quote in the Mid-day publication a source said, “In a pre-emptive move, the makers are now planning to rewrite the song to avoid legal repercussions. A final call will 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.”
Director Maqbool Khan said, “Since our lyrical arrangement did not go well with few people, we thought why not keeping the essence the same while changing the song a little bit.”
