The complaint was filed at the Falaknuma police station by businessman Zaheer Ali Khan, engineering student Muqeeth Khan and others.

A clip from the song, featuring actor Priya Prakash Varrier, has gone viral on social media sites.
The complainants, however, said they had not mentioned the actor’s name in their complaint before the police.
“We don’t have any objection against the actors,” Zaheer Khan said.

As part of their investigation, the police will take the opinion of some Islamic clerics on this after getting a translation of the song, he said.
“We will proceed based on their opinion… If the song has really hurt the sentiments then definitely action will be initiated against those involved,” the ACP said.
