'Mata Ka Email' song from 'Guddu Rangeela' in the midst of controversy

The song has hurt sentiments of a few religious organisations across North and West parts of the country

Subhash Kapoor’s Guddu and Rangeela is about two small-time orchestra singers based in Haryana, who sing a song 'Mata Ka Email' that has the following lyrics — 'Kal Raat Mata Ka Mujhe Email Aaya Hai, Mata Ne Mujhko Facebook Pe Bulaya Hai'.

The song has allegedly upset the sentiments of a few religious organisations across North and West parts of the country. As a result, the makers have received several emails and threatening calls asking them to remove this song from the film. The makers have been threatened that if they don't remove the song, they would risk facing dire consequences, including disruptions at the theatres. Recently in Ludhiana, there were demonstrations held demanding a ban to be put on the film and posters of the film were put on fire.

Talking to us about the threats, director of the film Subhash Kapoor said, "Guddu Rangeela is not a religious film. It's a masala entertainer with a message. There is nothing in the film that can hurt anybody's religious sentiments. The film is certified by the Censor Board and I request people to see the film when it releases on July 3 and then come to their own conclusions."

Watch the song and decide for yourself.

'Guddu Rangeela' stars Arshad Warsi, Amit Sadh as two bumbling criminals who run an orchestra party. They take on a villain (Ronit Roy) way stronger than themselves which land in a soup. The film produced by Mangal Murti Films is presented by Fox Star Studios is set to release on July 3.
