Sunny Leone’s indie-pop single Madhuban was published a few days ago by the label Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. The song is loosely based on Mohammad Rafi’s popular 1960s ballad. Sunny is seen showing her hot dancing talents in the song. While the song garnered mixed reviews, it drew criticism from Northern monks and saints who said that the song and the actress had soiled the honour of Lord Krishna’s birthplace with their filthy dance. Certain groups have asked for a ban and have petitioned the government to do so. According to the protesters, the song has offended Hindus’ religious sensitivities. Sa Re Ga Ma Pa issued a statement a few hours ago stating that the adjustments will be implemented within the next three days. Let’s take a look at the controversies that the actress has previously courted.
