Bejoy Nambiar’s ‘David’ lands in trouble over ‘Dama Dam Mast Kalandar’
Mumbai: Talented filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar whose latest, ‘David’, has already impressed audiences, has now courted trouble over the use of a popular Sindhi song ‘Dama Dam Mast Kalandar’.
The new version of the song that features veteran actress Sarika has apparently irked the Sindhi community. Apparently, the way the song has been picturised has hurt the sentiments of the Sindhis.
The song shows Sarika lip-syncing the song while shots of violence and love-making are juxtaposed. The song was originally penned by Aamir Khusro. Popular Sufi legend Bulleh Shah added his own touch to the piece and since then, a number of singers have rendered their own versions of the song.
“Our community is fragmented, but there are certain things we hold close to our heart. One of them is this song as it represents our culture. When the films promo shows violence and lovemaking sequences while the song is being played, it gives the wrong impression. It`s my sincere request that this is taken into consideration and they take it off air. I hope this does not work as a publicity stunt,” a leading daily quoted Manoj Matai, the complainant, as saying.
Nambiar clarified his stance to the daily on the controversy and said, “We have used this song because it is iconic and offers an instant connect with million of people. In the film, the song is played during a wedding. There is no intention to hurt the religious sentiments of any community.”
The film will see Neil Nitin Mukesh, Vikram and Vinay Virmani playing the lead roles.
