Several organisations have protested the use of the song, Manikya Malaraya Poovi, in the film, alleging it was derogatory to Prophet Mohammed. The song, which has been played for long at Muslim weddings, refers to Prophet Mohammed and his wife Khadeeja. The plea, moved through advocate Harris Beeran, mentions that Manikya Malaraya Poovi does not in any way disrespect the Prophet. Priya has pleaded that she is just 18 years old and is a student pursuing a B.Com degree from Vimala College in Kerala's Thrissur. Such flimsy and baseless complaints and FIRs cause nothing but hindrance in the freedom of speech and expression," the petition added.
