Peppy track ‘Aafat’ is in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The track is from Liger, which is set to release in theatres on August 25, 2022.
It is a romantic track featuring Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday on a picturesque beach.
However, the song has drawn flak for its questionable lyrics.
While some called the track cringy, many pointed out that one section of the lyrics featured dialogue from an old film where a woman is about to be raped and she shouts:
“Bhagwaan ke liye muje chod do.”
This has not gone down well on social media, with many criticising the casual use of “rape dialogue”.
A Reddit user shared the section and captioned it:
“Liger song ‘Aafat’ using a rape scene dialogue from old movies for… aesthetics? Idk.”
One user said: “Someone else on the sub had also pointed this out when the song was released.
