One of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year, Liger enters a controversy. The song Aafat by Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday is currently receiving a lot of backlash over the words used. Even though the song is titled “Crime Watch,” several people have highlighted the song’s rape phrases, including “Bhagwaan ke Liye Mujhe chod Do.” The casual use of rape language in the song didn’t sit well with the audience, who began making fun of it.
Users on social media began to criticize the lyrics, with one writing, “Liger song Aafat adopting a rape scene dialogue from ancient movies for.. aesthetics? Idk.”. Disgusting, but what else can you expect from a union between a misogynistic industry and a particularly misogynistic industry, a different person commented. Who in their right mind thought it would be cool to insert speech from a rape scene, a further user criticized wrote.
