'Beep song', sung by Simbu and allegedly composed by Anirudh is making waves for its illicit lyrics . Leaked by some miscreants a few days ago, the song went viral on social networking sites, subsequently attracting the wrath of many.
Now, a formal police complaint has been lodged against Simbu and Anirudh by The All India Democratic Women's Association (AIDWA), for portraying women in bad light.
"Artists have certain responsibilities toward the society. How did they even have the guts to make a song like this? We want them to take off the song off the net totally. We are also going to demand a legal action against the two for using such obscenities in the lyrics," a representative of AIDWA has said in an interview to Times of India.
But Simbu is staggered by how things have shaped up in the past few days. Alleging that his privacy has been breached, Simbu says the song was not meant to be released.
"Someone has invaded my privacy, stolen my song from me and leaked it out on the internet. How on earth am I responsible for this?" The Vaalu actor has asked.
Replying to those who has condemned his 'unacceptable' act, he has said, "When I did Love Anthem, a song promoting world peace, where were they? I brought Akon to popularise the song, but these same people didn't utter a word of appreciation."
He has also revealed that Anirudh and himself composed the song a few years ago, but never intended to release the song without changing its lyrics.
In a contradicting statement to Simbu's claims, Anirudh, who is currently stationed at Toronto in Canada, has said that he never composed the 'beep song'.
"It is neither my composition nor my lyrics. Unfortunately and to my dismay my name has been dragged into this controversy. I have the greatest regard and respect for women as can be clearly seen in many of my own compositions", Anirudh wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, a Facebook post in the name of veteran actor Y G Mahendran, has severely condemned the song by saying that the offenders must be hanged. The social media page is not verified though.
