Priests protest against Sunny Leone’s dance to ‘Madhuban mein Radhika’

The All India Pilgrimage Priests Association head has found Leone's dance as well as choice of Brajbhumi for the performance offensive

Mathura-based priests have demanded a ban on Sunny Leone’s latest album, accusing the Bollywood actress of hurting their religious sentiments by performing an “obscene” dance on the iconic Madhuban mein Radhika naache song.

The song had originally been sung by for the 1960 film Kohinoor.

“We will go to court if the government does not act against the actress and ban her album,” said Sant Naval Giri Maharaj of Vrindaban.

Unless she withdraws the scene and tenders a public apology, she should not be allowed to remain in India, he said.

Akhil Bhartiya Tirth Purohit Mahasabha’s national president Mahesh Pathak too has taken exception to Sunny Leone’s dance video, saying she has maligned the prestige of Brijbhumi by presenting the song in a “derogatory manner”.

Saregama on Wednesday released its latest music titled Madhuban which features in the party number sung by Kanika Kapoor and Arindam Chakraborty.

As the song is on the subject of love between Krishna and Radha, netizens have slammed it too — for hurting Hindu sentiments due to “sensual” moves by the actor in her dance.

Watch and judge:

The seer said she should not be allowed to remain in India unless she withdraws from the scene and tenders a public apology.

The news agency also reported that Akhil Bhartiya Tirth Purohit Mahasabha’s national president Mahesh Pathak has said Sunny Leone has maligned the prestige of Brijbhumi by presenting the song in a “derogatory manner”.

There has never been a protest on the original, classical raga-based song by Rafi picturised on thespian Dilip Kumar for the film Kohinoor in 1960. The song was penned by lyricist Shakeel Badayuni and set to Raga Hamir on Teen Taal.

The soundtrack of Kohinoor went on to become a cult favourite among lovers for its soul-stirring music compositions.
