Since its release, Rahul Vaidya and Bhoomi Trviedi’s song “Garbe Ki Raat” has been in the headlines for a contentious cause. The song’s recent release has caused quite a commotion, particularly among Gujarati listeners, with many claiming that it offends religious feelings. Rahul and actress Nia Sharma star in the song’s video, which is directed and choreographed by Rahul Shetty.
A section of a Gujarati folk song, ‘Ramva Aavo Madi,’ has been inserted into the song amid the Hindi lyrics, which has not gone over well with the Gujarati people.
Speaking to ETimes, Bhoomi Trivedi addressed the controversy and said, “As a singer, I completed my audio recording of the song and got back to my life and other works. I have nothing to do with the video. As soon as I saw the video representation of the folk part, I immediately pulled down all the promotional videos from my social media. I myself condemn such representation. I am well aware and respect the dignity and essence of the songs we cherish in Gujarat.”
J.K. Rajput has also filed a FIR in this matter at Amroli Police Station in Surat, according to an ETimes report, on the grounds of insulting religious faith and hurting people by falsehood.
Bhoomi Trivedi was also said to have been uninformed of the video’s visual concept and apologised to the community. The FIR, on the other hand, underlines and requests that the video song be removed from the YouTube channel or that the channel be banned from the site.
