Bigg Boss contestant gets death threats after releasing a song

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 • Tamil Comments

Singer and former Bigg Boss contestant Rahul Vaidya has apparently been receiving death threats and severe backlash over the mention of a certain deity in a song he recently composed and released. The song, Garbe Ki Raat, makes a reference to Shri Mogal Maa, a Hindu goddess worshipped in Gujarat.

Rahul Vaidya's spokesperson, in a statement, maintained that the reference did not intend to hurt anyone and that the team was working to get the detail rectified. "Yes, it's true these messages and calls have gone up in number since last night, the messages speak about having Rahul Vaidya killed, beaten and filing FIRs against him to have him arrested and so on, while we would like to maintain that the mention of the Deity was done with respect and did not mean to hurt anyone's sentiments," the singer's spokesperson was quoted as saying by a news agency.

The spokesperson added that the changes that have been made will take a while to reflect in the song. However, understanding the fact that the mention has not gone down too well with a certain section of people we respect that and are working to get it rectified at our level. We urge everyone who has taken offence to this to allow us a few days as the platform we have released the song on will take at least a few days to adjust the rectification. Rest assured we respect the emotions and sentiments of all those who have raised their concern and are diligently working towards rectifying it," the statement added.
