Priya Prakash Varrier's viral song in legal trouble; complaint alleges lyrics hurt Muslim sentiments

After wreaking havoc on social media, the 'Manikya Malaraya Poovi' song from the film Oru Adaar Love has landed the film in hot waters. A complaint alleging that the song hurts the sentiments of the Muslim community has been filed by Muqeeth Khan, reports News18. Khan alleges that the lyrics of the song insult Prophet Muhammad when translated to English. He has maintained that those who find the lyrics hurtful, have nothing against its actress.

Featuring internet sensation Priya Prakash Varrier, the song garnered millions of views in just two days of its release. Varrier, a Malayalam actress, shot to fame overnight after a ten-second clip of hers in which she winks, went viral on social media. The song is a typical love song which features school-going couples and budding romance.

Omar Lulu, the director of the movie, has clarified that the song is another rendition of an old song from the 70s. He tells News18 that it is a typical love song and is being sung by people from all communities in the film. He also says that there is no question of removing the song from the film as nothing against any religion.
