BENGALURU: Bengaluru police have decided to pull the curtains on an event scheduled for Saturday which was on the lines of a flash mob.New Delhi and Mumbai have already hosted the ‘Bolo Aunty Aun Kya’ event, where a crowd gathers to sing the song by one Omprakash Mishra which is laced with sexual innuendos. However, the event slated in Bengaluru has received severe flak online. Bengaluru City police, who have not yet received an application for holding the event, conclusively stated that they will not grant permission.

Three events were scheduled in Bengaluru on Saturday — in Brigade Road, Cubbon Road and Dayananda Sagar Institute of Technology in Kumaraswamy Layout. The events were announced on Facebook. So far, 3,000 people from Bengaluru had showed interest in the event.Principal of Dayananda Sagar College P S Prakash said they had not been informed about any such event and permission will not be granted for the same.

The event has been organised by fan followers of a rapper Omprakash Mishra who came up with this song in 2015. The song revolves around a young man who is infatuated with an older woman and is frustrated that she does not return his feelings.The event which is being said to be derogatory against women has received severe criticism online. City Police Commissioner T Suneel Kumar said no one had approached them for permission. “We are trying to understand what exactly the event is. We are also verifying who the organisers are. Permission will not be granted for such an event and action will be taken if it takes place despite that,” he added.

The invite on Facebook reads
“Come one and all for the auspicious event of the year. Bangalore aise kaise piche rahe. Tag and invite your friends. Those gathering are expected to tie a handkerchief, wear a bracelet or ‘Salman Khan wala bracelet’ or band on your left hand to identify themselves as part of the group. It is also optional for one to wear sunglasses. The greeting happens thus. When they encounter each other, they shout ‘Bolna Aunty Aun Kya’ or shout ‘Jai Omprakash Bhai’.
