Celebrity references in songs have become quite popular in Sandalwood these days. Recently, we had a song from Chathurbuja that spoke about political and celebrity affairs. However, the Censor Board chopped it and in the end, the producer’s name was included in the song.

 Following the bandwagon is a song from the film Chirayu, which has not only political references, but also mentions actors, directors and others from the film fraternity.

 The song that has been leaked goes, Sura Bhataru kudkondu thinkondu jaati bitaru, jogi jangamaru, jogi jangamaru, thamuburi ellade gaana bittaru. Yaka yaka Shobha aka cinema hucch bidaka, 30 varsha thumbidre, moosu nodoru ella akka.. 

There are lines that refer to Ganesh and Diganth. Male bandmele, bisilu barale beku. Kene mele gooli agola chocolate boy, go the lines.

Likewise, the song has also taken potshots at actor-director Upendra, Jogi Prem, director A P Arjun and many others.

Prashanth, the lead actor of the film, was initially surprised by the song being leaked. He says, “The film is an absolute entertainer and this song is situational.”

 Being part of the entertainment business, why did they think of taking a dig at their own colleagues, we wonder. And why was Shobha the only politician referred to in the song?

 “I had initially requested Yograj Bhat to write a song for the film. Since he was busy, I approached Uday Shiva. He wrote the lyrics and has expressed his bitter experiences in the industry through this song. It became a catchy number when combined with the tunes of G R Shankar.”

“I don’t find anything wrong in taking celebrity references in songs. We all do it for entertainment. It’s not like we are talking about them behind their backs,” he asserts.
