Javed Akhtar, the veteran lyricist and writer become the latest celebrity to face criticism from the fans. The writer of the films including Sholay, Zanjeer and others was criticized by the fans for praising Shanmukhapriya who sang Helen’s iconic song ‘Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu’ in Indian Idol 12. While Shanmukhapriya was again trolled by the viewers for yodelling, Javed Akhtar was asked by the fans whether he was paid to come as a guest in the episode.
Javed Akhtar told Shanmukhapriya during the show that “How do people react to your performance on social media. I think you should be criticized a lot? Do they talk nasty about you, they do right? They should do it. Because if a girl as smart, as confident and competent as you comes on stage, people from India will never appreciate her. They get insecure. They prefer girls who are underconfident and are not sure of their decisions. But you on the other hand feel nobody else can perform better than me. And I feel this is one of your bad qualities (he said in a sarcastic way)”.
Shanmukhapriya was trolled by the viewers for spoiling the song ‘Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu’ when she styled the song in her own way and gave it a remix.

#ShanmukhaPriya shocked to see that sir #JavedAkhtar is also sold by #IndianIdol2021 and promoting singers who can't sing. Anyways just a request to this pathetic singer please don't butcher classic famous songs, `dil dharak ne do` types songs suits you. Thank you.
