The song 'Malang' from Dhoom 3, penned by lyricist Sameer Anjaan is in trouble as the Madariya Sufi community has sent a legal notice to actors Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif along with producers Yash Raj Films and music director Sameer.
Sameer Anjan, who has penned lyrics for hit songs like 'Nazar Ke Saamne' (Aashiqui), 'Anarkali Disco Chali' in Housefull 2, 'Tum Paas Aaye' (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai) and 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham' is in trouble as the community has apparently accused the song of hurting its religious sentiments.
The lyricist is obviously hurt with the last minute 'twist' and says that he is extremely proud of his song 'Malang' which he thinks is a beautiful, pure and sublime Sufi love song. Responding to the litigation, Sameer Anjaan said, "These sort of litigations and legal troubles just before the release of a film have become a way of troubling filmmakers unnecessarily. Just see what the people behind Ram-Leela had to go through. Even I was pulled up unnecessarily for an earlier song 'Anarkali Disco Chali' in Housefull 2. There was legal action against that song with people arguing that Anarkali was a historical figure."
Sameer sees no point in the last minute court case and says that there has to be some strict rules laid down against this kind of nuisance litigation. He further stressed that there is nothing derogatory in the word 'Malang' and questions, "Do you think an artiste like Aamir Khan would participate in a song that hurts any religion or community?"
