Chennai, Jan 20 (): Anirudh Ravichander, the young music composer of ‘Kolaveri Di’ fame has landed himself in trouble for posting a teaser of a controversial music clip, said to be his first ever independent single on YouTube four days back.
Mr S Jebadas Pandian, advocate has written to the Commissioner of Police today complaining against Anirudh’s music video titled – ‘“Aint nobody ****in with my music”, under Information Technology Act. A CD containing the offensive music video, along with requisite accompanying material has also been sent to the Police Commissioner, say sources.
The said music video was uploaded by Anirudh Ravichander on YouTube on 16th January 2014, and extensively publicized by him through the various social media.
The complainant in his letter has said that to his immense shock, the said video is filled with lyrics that are obscene, immoral and degrading to women in general, and mothers in particular. In light of the ongoing crimes against women, such lyrics abusing motherhood and being obviously perverse, would have the effect of instigating the youth of our state to participate in such acts of obscenity and perversion at the behest of the aforesaid video. Such obscene lyrics, targeting women who are considered holy in several religions, would also have the effect of triggering religious/communal conflict and is in general an affront to decency and standards of public living.
Being a celebrity and having achieved fame at such young age, Mr.Anirudh has chosen to abuse the same and corrupt our youth by exposing them to such lyrics and provoking them to commit acts of illegality and immorality, says the petitioner.
It is also stated in the police complaint that the said video has been released by Mr.Anirudh without obtaining censor certification under the Indian Cinematograph Act 1952, which is indicative of his attitude and desires to perverse all standards of decency and morality for materials in the public domain, and cause irreparable harm to young minds who would easily be influenced by the nature and content of such lyrics.
Besides the Indian Cinematograph Act, such acts of obscenity and indecency are violative of the provisions of the Information Technology Act 2000 and the Indian Penal Code.
The complainant has requested the Police chief to take requisite and speedy action against Mr.Anirudh in light of protecting public interest, decency and safety, and to protect the dignity and respect attached to motherhood in our State and Country.
