Ban called for Manikya Malaraya Poovi!

Allegations against the song!

If Mollywood is anything to go by they keep making the headlines with their creative and viral content! Priya Prakash Varrier debuted in the song, “Manikya Malaraya Poovi’ from the film ‘Oru Adar Love’. What looks like a coming of age film, based on school students a few seconds of the song video wherein Priya makes the cutest eyebrow expressions have gone viral with several memes and spoofs.

Now a fringe group has called for the ban of the song based on the complaint that it hurts Muslim sentiments. Raza Academy President said that using the folk number in movies is any ‘Islamic laws’.

“The lyrics of the song are of a Malayalam folk song which is only sung during the events of Muslims, using it in movies or any form of entertainment is against the Islamic laws,” he added. He also said, “If the song is not removed from the film then the members of Raza academy will protest nationwide.” Only time will tell more on this issue.
