Latest Bollywood song from ‘Khaali Peeli’ featuring Ananya Panday and Ishaan Khatter sparks fury among social media users for being disrespectful to US singer, Beyoncé.

Titled, Beyonce Sharma Jayegi, the freshly-dropped first track of the film Khaali Peeli has drawn flak online.

Soon after its release, netizens started apologizing to the pop sensation Beyoncé for the sexist and racist lyrics.

A Twitter user fumed: “Beyonce sharma jayegi was not only problematic and racist. IT DID NOT EVEN RHYME! THAT IS THE LEAST THEY COULD DO! Dhinchak Pooja songs rhymed better than #BeyonceSharmaJayegi.”

“#BeyonceSharmaJaayegi Hindi songs lyrics hit a new low! Extremely disappointed & disgusted! #BeyonceSharmaJayegi #KhaaliPeeli #KhaaliPeeliTrailer,” said another.

“This is just blatantly ignoring the fact how they’re glorifying fair skin (yet again) and then comparing it to Beyoncé. This is RACIST. Y’all are embarrassing yourselves. TAKE THIS DOWN AND APOLOGIZE #BeyonceSharmaJayegi,” added a third.

The comment’s section of the song’s YouTube video is also replete with comments calling out its racist lyrics.
