Objection against AR Rehmans song in Gautam Menons Hindi remake

‘Ek Deewan Tha’, a remake of Gautam Menon’s ‘ViNNai Thaandi Varuvaaya’ has the song ‘Hosanna’ by AR Rehman.  This movie is set for release on February 17th. 

Among Christians ‘Hosanna’ is a prayer in Bible.  The Catholic Christian Secular Forum (CSF) does not want the word Hosanna to occur in the song. If the demand is not considered, the CSF said it will resort to agitation.

Since the prayer is common for both Christians and Jews, the CSF has demanded immediate withdrawal of the lyrics so no offense is meant to both communities.

The movie ‘Ek Deewana Tha’ is a venture which Gautam Menon has written and directed.  This is a remake of the Tamil movie ‘ViNNai Thaandi Varuvaaya’.

Joseph Dias, general secretary of CSF said ‘The issue is not the lyrics or vulgar cinematizing. Although both of these are objectionable, we like to bring to light the word ‘Hosanna’ occurring in the song. The word Hosanna is a reference to God which has been misused. The word needs to be deleted.’
