`Ishq ki maa ki` censored, lyrics changed to `...naa ki`
New Delhi: The lyrics of Mika`s newest Bollywood offering "Ishq ki maa ki" from the upcoming film ‘I Don`t Luv U’ had to be changed after the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) raised objections to the lyrics.
The song, which features in the movie`s trailer, will now be called "Ishq ki naa ki".
"We had to replace the word `Maa ki` with `Naa ki` in Mika`s song in order to honour the Censor`s verdict," Pallavi Mishra, the film`s associate producer, said.
‘I Don`t Luv U’, starring Ruslaan Mumtaz and debutante Chetna Pande, releases May 17. It is a movie on the modern youth and how casually they tackle relationships, with the backdrop of an MMS scandal.
Mishra said the term "Maa ki" was not used in a "bad sense".
"It was used only to add some fun element and show the frustration of youth against love. It is another way of saying `to hell with love`, and nothing serious," she added.
The film, which is otherwise said to have been given a U/A certificate, is written and directed by Amit Kasaria. Presented by Amrapali Media Vision, it is produced by Anil Kumar Sharma in association with Pallavi Mishra.
