On Tuesday night, a group of Muslims in Hyderabad has lodged a complaint with the Falaknuma Police Station against the song featuring internet sensation Priya Prakash Varrier.

The complainant Zaheer Khan told CNN-News18, “The song’s lyrics are against Muslim sentiments and are offensive to the followers of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). The picturization of the song is a girl and boy romancing which is hurting religious sentiments. We demand song should be banned.”
