Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra has ordered that Sunny Leone, Shaarib, and Toshi remove the song within three days. Previously, clerics in Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura urged a ban on Sunny Leone’s new video album, accusing the Bollywood star of offending their religious emotions by executing a “obscene” dance on the song “Madhuban mein Radhika nache.”
Sunny Leone’s new song album, ‘Madhuban mein Radhika, jaise jungle me nache mor,’ has made news since its debut on YouTube. After a Mathura priest ordered that the song be banned, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra advised actor Sunny Leone and singers Shaarib and Toshi on Sunday (December 26) to apologise and pull their music video within three days. He further stated that if they do not comply, they would face legal action and a FIR will be filed against them. The entire dispute has erupted because of Radhika’s name in this song. He said that the song had wounded people’s feelings.
The minister said that the film offends Hindu religious feelings.
“Some vidharmis are constantly hurting Hindu sentiments. Radha is our goddess. We worship her and have different temples for her. Can Shaarib compose such a song on his own religion? They are hurting Hindu sentiments. I am warning Sunny Leone ji, Shaarib and Toshi ji to understand. If they don’t remove the song after apologising in three days, then we will take action against them,”
Mishra said while talking to India TV.
The song features Sunny Leone and has been sung by Shaarib and Toshi.
On December 22, Sunny took to Twitter and announced the song, “New Song Alert, Party Vibes only with #Madhuban!, while sharing the video of the song ‘Madhuban me Radhika, jaise jungle me nache mor’.
