‘Rangasthalam’ song sparks controversy


Ram Charan’s upcoming film Rangasthalam is releasing on March 30. While the team is buoyed with the superb response for the songs and the teasers, the lyrics of the recently released chartbuster song Rangamma Mangamma have not gone too well with the ‘Yadav’ community.

Ramulu Yadav, All India president of Yadav community, demanded the removal of a particular lyric in Rangamma Mangamma song. He objected to ‘Gollabhama Vachi Gorugillutunte’ lines from the song as they are intended to belittle the sentiments of women in their community.

He threatened to protest against the film after its release if the offensive lyrics are not expunged immediately.

The makers of Rangasthalam are yet to respond on the issue. The film is slated for Summer release.

This is not the first time, the lyrics of a Telugu song have invited criticism from a community. Last year, Allu Arjun’s Duvvada Jagannadham got involved in a similar controversy.
