CHENNAI: The Madras High Court today refused to stay the summons issued by police to Tamil film actor Silambarasan, popularly known as Simbu, and music director Anirudh Ravichander over a controversial song allegedly denigrating women.    

When petitions by Simbu and Anirudh seeking quashing of the summons issued by Coimbatore police and praying for a stay came up before him, Justice R. Subbaiah refused to stay the summons and posted the matter for further hearing to January 5 next.    

Acting on a complaint lodged by All India Democratic Women's Association, a case was registered and summons issued asking the two to appear before the Race Course police station in Coimbatore on December 19.    

The "beep song", reportedly rendered by Simbu and music allegedly composed by Anirudh, has come in for strong objections from several women organisations over the lyrics used in it.    

AIDWA in its complaint has alleged that the song, which went viral on social media recently, was obscene and depicted women in a very bad taste.
