Earlier this week, the CSF had filed a complaint with the concerned department against makers of the song 'Hosanna'. In the complaint, the institution stated that 'Hosanna' is a prayer in holy bible and the use of the word had hurt the sentiments of Jews and Christians. So it demanded apology from musician, Fox India and the producers.
Today, AR Rahman has released a press statement regarding the 'Hosanna' controversy. "I had researched it and had consulted friends who are Christian about the use of the word. The song was a sensation when it was released in the South a couple of years ago. I am concerned about the sentiments of all those who appear to be hurt," the Mid Day quotes his statement.
