Munni Badnam Hui..’, ‘Chikni Chameli..’, ‘Halkat Jawaani..’, ‘Sheila Ki Jaawaani...’, ‘Oo La La....’ These mindless lyrics have raised eyebrows among the female class alleging them to be the prime reason behind raising crime against women. Besides the female class legendary playback singer Asha Bhosle too is peeved at these nonsensical lewd lyrics.

In an interview the great playback singer condemning these ribald lyrics said, "It is really embarrassing that these days’ filmmakers are making songs from abusive language. She said, "Gaalion ka gaana banta hai aajkal aur" She added, "What is most disturbing is that some foreign singers who sing English and Hindi songs use offensive words such as ‘rape’ that can have a nasty consequence on the minds of youngsters." 
 
Bewildered at songs like ‘Halkat Jawaani..’, ‘Sheila Ki Jaawaani...’, ‘Oo La La...’ Asha Bhosle, who has to her credit, awards such Padma Vibhushan and Dadasaheb Phalke mourned, "I once heard a kid singing Halkat Jawaani and was aghast. I feel pity at people who appreciate songs like ‘lungis’ and 'zandu balm'...

Asha Bhosle was speaking at FICCI Ladies Organisation meet in Delhi. She said, "During our times when I sang songs like Piya Tu Ab To Aaja (CARAVAN), Dum Maaro Dum.. (HARE RAMA HARE KRISHNA), Yeh Mera Dil... (Don) these songs were considered bold in those days but nowhere did the songs crossed the line of decency." 
 
In fact lyricists declined to pen songs that had double meanings. Once eminent lyricist Majrooh Sultanpuri put his foot down to pen a vulgar song protesting he has three daughters and he does not wish that they sing such bawdy songs. 
 
Asha Bhosle said, "I have always rejected such songs and even today I stick to my principals and urge singers to take a stand, and women to unite in this matter. They shouldn’t sing or act in such songs, nor watch such films."
