Music director Anirudh Ravichander, who has taken the typical ‘Madras’ dialect to dizzying heights by making them part of the songs he composes music for, and actor Simbu find themselves in the midst of a fresh controversy brewing over the ‘vulgar’ lyrics of a new song.
Known as a more-than-capable playback singer, Simbu is not under fire for the song he recorded some time back in Anirudh’s music. The song in question is said to have been sung jointly by Simbu and Anirudh. The song’s lyrics appear to be demeaning girls/women comprising many unprintable and vulgar words.
Netizens, who have listened to the song, point out that the opening line itself is highly controversial and vulgar-looking. This song is referred to as ‘Adults Only’ by regular netizens as they claim that only adults beyond 18 years of age can ‘listen’ to the lyrics of the song.
The song and the controversy over the lyrics assume significance especially in the prevalent scenario in the country when violence – verbal and physical – against women is opposed by social activists.
