‘Khaali Peeli’ makers tweak singer Beyonce’s spelling in song

Read Time:1 Minute, 5 Second

Makers of Ananya Panday and Ishaan Khatter-starrer “Khaali Peeli” have tweaked their latest track “Beyonce sharma jayegi” after it was in news and criticised for having racist undertones.

The track was released last week, got negativity as it was under scanner for its lyrics “tujhe dekh ke goriya Beyonce sharma jayegi” with netizens bashing it out for furthering the glories of white skin and a bizzare comparison to the African-American pop star.

The film makers first tweaked the Vishal-Shekhar composed track by changing the spelling of Beyonce, replacing ‘c’ with a ‘s’ and have now completely changed the line to “tera dekh ke nakhra duniya sharma jayegi.”

Debutant director Maqbool Khan said the decision to make changes to the track, written by Kumaar and Raj Shekhar, was taken as the team wants to “entertain” and not offend anyone.

“Since our lyrical arrangement did not go well with few people, we thought why not keeping the essence same, change the song a little bit,” Khan said in a statement.

The peppy beat and musical arrangement of the song principally continues to remain as it is.

“Khaali Peeli” is backed by filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar and is set to release on the pay-per-view service Zee Plex on October 2.
