Honey Singh in trouble again!

July 10, 2019 | 12:31 IST | CineBuzz |

Pop sensation Yo Yo Honey Singh and music producer Bhushan Kumar have been booked by Punjab police on the charge of using vulgar lyrics against women in their latest song.

The rapper has been booked following a complaint lodged by the Punjab State Women Commission which sought action against him for allegedly using vulgar lyrics against women in the song. The singer is booked under section 294 (punishment for obscene song and acts) and section 509 (punishment for word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the IPC.

The words used are absolutely irreverent for a woman that’s why they want strict action against Honey Singh and Bhushan Kumar (Managing Director of T-Series). This isn’t the first time that the rapper is facing criticism over his songs. In the aftermath of the 2012 Delhi gang-rape case, some of his songs drew flak for allegedly depicting violence against women and rape in a positive light.
