Sanjay Jha's Strings: Bound By Faith is in the midst of a controversy due to a PIL registered by some Sadhus of Allahabad over a song in the film. The song called 'Mantra' originally is a poem written by Baba Nagarjun 1969. It was however, banned for sometime in 1977. But Sanjay Jha claims that it is a very important piece of literature and many people have done their PHD on it.
The lyrics though controversial, speak about the drawbacks in the democratic set-up. Sanjay Jha says that the Censor Board has passed the film with a U/A certificate and that he won't delete the song from the film by any chance. He also says that Om is a universal word and no one has rights over it.
