Many of you will have heard a catchy song with the chant ‘Hare Krishna Hare Rama’ being aired extensively on the radio in the past few weeks. It is in fact the lead track of the recently released Indian thriller-comedy ‘Bhul Bhulaiya’, and the popularity of the song is credited with helping the film register very impressive box office figures in the first fortnight since its release.
Although well received by most, the song has ignited the wrath of a section of Hindus, who claim that the lyrics and especially the video that accompany the song are too explicit and sexual to be placed alongside the holy names of Krishna and Rama. Some Buddhists have also complained, as a statue of Buddha features prominently in the video (click here to see video and song).
