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 thinking it was utterly racist.

Now, a couple of days after the whole online drama, director 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 on October 2 on Zee Plex on a pay-per-view basis.

I started touring with Shankar and his band during my college and university days. So on weekdays, I would work at a cardiology office, and on the weekends, I’d sing. I loved how music made me feel, so I decided to give it a serious shot. My mom gave me two years to figure out my singing plans and if they did not work out, I was to go back to medical school,” she revealed in an interview.
