Controversies

Mishra stated, “Some individuals are always hurting Hindu sensibilities… there are Radha temples… we pray to her. Saqib Toshi (the music composer) is free to write songs about his faith, but such songs annoy us. If the video is not removed within three days, I will seek legal counsel and take appropriate action.” Following Mishra’s warning, music label Saregama announced that the song’s name and lyrics will be “changed.”
