Khaali Peeli: Makers Explain Why They Used 'Goriya' in 'Beyonce Sharma Jayegi' Song, Insist It Wasn't Racist

Unless you are living under a huge rock, you’d know the whole fuss around Ananya Panday and Ishaan Khatter’s Beyonce Sharma Jayegi song from Khaali Peeli. While the makers thought it was quirky and would gel well with the millennial lingo, little did they know the kind of trolling it would receive online. Besides comparing Ananya to a legend that Beyonce is, fans were pretty upset with the term ‘goriya‘ which was used in the song it was utterly racist.

Now, a couple of days after the whole online drama, Maqbool Khan has reacted to the controversy saying that it wasn’t their intention to hurt anyone’s sentiments. “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 a literal manner,” said Khan when asked to react to the controversy surrounding his movie’s song.

Going further he also explained the comparisons with Beyonce by saying, “It is simply meant to be a street-smart guy flattering a girl who is trying to impress that her dancing/performance is worth comparing to even Beyonce who we all see as the final word, the epitome of talent, beauty, performance, style and attitude. We are all huge fans, and there was never any question of disrespect.”

Well, we don’t know how convincing this reasoning would sound to all Queen Bey fans. Meanwhile, recent reports suggest if the makers are contemplating about penning down new lyrics to avoid getting sued by the pop star. Beyonce had trademarked her name many years ago and this entitles her to sue the makers of Khaali Peeli for using her name in their song without taking any prior permission.

Khaali Peeli is all set to release October 2 on Zee Plex on a pay-per-view basis.

Mika Singh: Get Off Social Media and Help People Amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic

Mika Singh people ought to stop indulging Twitter sermonising and do some actual work if they want to pitch in with help amidst the Covid pandemic. The singer has initiated a food service (Langar Seva) under his NGO, and had kickstarted his efforts on Monday offering free meals to bus drivers, street kids, poor and the needy. “When the Farmers’ Protest took place and the farmers needed help, people indulged in Twitter-baazi, they kept tweeting that we will do this and we will do that, but nothing came out of it. There is no need to show support on Twitter, step outside and help, do the actual bit. Shares Few Tips To Tackle Post-COVID 19 Weakness ( Video).

“Whenever there is an issue, people just hop onto Twitter and start writing. It’s my humble request to people, do actual help and stop making bayaan baazi (sermonising) on Twitter,” said Mika. Mika has been an avid supporter of the farmers’ protest and still supports the cause, but believes that Covid is a bigger issue and everyone should start doing their bit.

He said: “I am certain that the government will take a decision. There is no one bigger than government and this matter (the farmers’ protest) should be resolved quickly. But right now, people are dying of hunger rather than coronavirus. We should also worry about people who are still alive and on road. People on road need food, the unemployed need food, people don’t have drinking water, clothes to wear and place to sleep, and it’s time we take living into consideration as well.”

Asked whether the entertainment industry was facing a backlash for not doing enough for people and just making tall claims on social media platforms, Mika replied: “I love Bollywood and I respect it. See, there are people who are actually doing good work and helping others, but there is huge brigade of people who just want to wear expensive shoes and watches. To that I say, if god has blessed you with good fortune, please help someone in need as well.”
