Ishaan Khattar and Ananya Panday's upcoming movie Khaali Peeli has landed itself in a controversy due to their recently released song. The movie dropped a song title "Beyonce Sharma Jayegi" and it has been slammed for its racism undertone. Internet users pointed out the line, "Tujhe dekh ke goriya, Beyoncé sharma jayegi" and heavily criticised it on social media. The music video has received over 6.7 lakh dislikes on YouTube.  If that wasn't enough of a problem, the movie could face a legal threat from Queen Bey herself. 

For the unversed, Beyonce has trademarked her name, barring it from using her name commercially. Given this, a Mid-Day report states that the makers are likely to rework on the lyrics of the song to avoid an international legal battle. A source informed the national daily that the final call will be taken this week. 

"In a pre-emptive move, the makers are now planning to rewrite the song to avoid legal repercussions. A final call will be taken this week. With the dance number being called out for racism, it will be an unwise move to take on an international star like Beyoncé, especially at a time when the Black Lives Matter movement has set the stage for equality," the insider said. 

While the song has been slammed, Khaali Peeli's trailer hasn't been spared either. Khaali Peeli's teaser has received over 1.7 million downvotes on YouTube following its release. Are you going to watch Khaali Peeli? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Lyricists are probably the ones who are most at blame. But everyone else involved with the song including the singers and actors lip syncing should’ve realized that this song is racist and colorist. It’s their fault as well for not calling them out

The directors and lyricists are not only blatant proponents of colorism, from their own choice of lyrics and casting an untalented light-skinned actress in the film and song, but are also beyond stupid. How did they not know that Beyoncé trademarked her name? Hope she sues them. Moreover, Bollywood actors and directors will come out with their performative activism in favor of Black Lives Matter, while still perpetuating anti-Black racism in their work. It is a racist, awful industry.

Ya I am surely going to watch y to not watch bcz of nepotism wow those people who are judging movie should realise that also star kids to director and technical team have worked hard people are dumb by saying nepotism I will not watch both have improved their acting skill compared to their previous work my opinion is not about their fan I am not either fan of them ananya is also far better than that plastic kapoor who is not worth to industry

Obviously they might’ve improved their performance. Because they keep getting second chances. Since they are star kids they are easily given second chances even if their previous movies are a HUGE flop. It is not the same with actors who aren’t Nepo kids

Ya teaser was great but they shouldn’t have taken Beyoncé’s name it is kind of insult to her , actually it is the fault of “KUMAR “ he is the lyricist of this song , Ananya and Ishaan just danced on this song , so according to me the lyricists are at fault , now people think that Ananya’s a nepo kid , all these years we have been watching their movies , and that too some were hit!! So the teaser looks interesting , WAITING TO WATCH THE movie!! SORRY BEYONCE MA’AM!!

It's not just the lyricist. Ananya and Ishaan are artists (adult artists). Dont they have brains to think what are we dancing to? And even the singers Neeti Mohan and Nakash Aziz. Dont they have akkal to introspect - wht are we singing? Why dont out artists be more responsible? Because of this "chalta hai" attitude. PV pls post.

I am going to watch it.... The teaser got dislikes coz of the " nepotism thing". But if we judge it beyond that,, both Ishaan and Ananya have done gr8 acting.... Guys get over "nepotism" it happens in all the sectors... Watch the teaser again and now judge it by their performance.

Lol. The teaser got dislikes because of the lackluster sneakpeek and the terrible starcast, esp everyone's fav struggle Queen. Her PR and fake fC accounts and her nibbi fans are the only ones who'll watch that heap of dung
