Yo Yo Honey Singh is in controversy yet again. The Punjabi rapper is in trouble for the objectionable lyrics of his song, Makhna, that released in December last year.
Manisha Gulati, the Chairperson of the Punjab State Women Commission, taking suo moto notice of the matter, has written to the Additional Chief Secretary, Home, Punjab DGP and IG Crime, Punjab, recommending action against the singer. Gulati has express disapproval of lines such as ‘Main hoon womaniser’ and ‘Silicon wali ladkiyon ko main pakadta Nahi.’ She has sought status report in the matter from the senior police officials by July 12.
In her application, Gulati has written, “A legal action and an inquiry are required to be initiated by the police on the matter as the song readied by T-Series chairman Bhushan Kumar and singers Honey Singh and Neha Kakkar uses vulgar words against women.”
Gulati said that the song was viral on social media and that its video was also objectionable. She added that she had taken a serious note of it and hence, asked the police to register an FIR against Singh and Kumar. She demanded that the song be banned and raised objections against the Censor Board. Gulati will meet the State Government officials to get the song banned at least in Punjab.
Below is the song in question:
In the past as well, Singh has been slammed for offensive lyrics in his songs. Tracks such as Lakk 28, Blue Eyes, Kiklikalerdi and Brown Rang, among many others, have been on the receiving end of criticism. On the work front, Singh recently wrapped up the shoot of his upcoming video in Jalandhar. The song, a remake of a popular Punjabi song, is expected to be out this month. According to the rapper, it will be a blend of Bhangra and Hip Hop.
