Shabana Azmi: Compared to today\'s songs the \'Sarkai Lo Khatiya\' era seems innocent

Mumbai May 16 2013,

A number entitled Ishq Ki Maa Ki so infuriated Shabana Azmi that she called up an FM channel playing the song.

A source revealed, \"Ishq Ki Maa Ki was playing on a FM channel. When Shabanaji heard the number she immediately called up the radio jockey and demanded to know why such a song was being played. She also tweeted angrily against the song and the lyricist.\"

Shabana Azmi\'s tweet which invited a lot of responses read, \"I cannot believe the song \'Ishq Ki Maa Ki\' has been written by a woman Pallavi Mishra. Revolting shameful disgusting and condemnable.\"

Tragically the song that offended Shabana is not written by Pallavi but Amit Kasaria, who has written the song and directed the film I Don\'t Luv U which contains the song.

Says Amit, \"I have the highest regard for Shabanaji. She doesn\'t seem to know that I wrote the song that has offended her. And I wonder why it has offended her! I am a young and new filmmaker, so I am an easy target. Vulnerable sections of people are easy scapegoats to justify moral attitudes. My song is not the least offensive. I\'d say Bhaag DK Bose and Teri Keh Ke Lunga are the songs she should be targeting.\"

Amit adds, \"I repeat, my song doesn\'t insult women in any way. It only expresses the frustration of the young in love. My film is not anti-women at all. I invite Shabana to see my film. I am sure she will have a different opinion after seeing what I have to say.\"

Shabana Azmi retorted, \"There\'re no absolutes in freedom. We must exercise self-regulation, we find children dancing to such songs! Compared to today\'s songs the Sarkai Lo Khatiya Jaada Lage era seems innocent.\"
