Internet wink sensation Priya Prakash Varrier along with Oru Adaar Love's director and the producer has been forced to approach the Supreme Court for squashing criminal complaints about the song Manikya Malaraya Poovi.

Various FIR's have been registered from Hyderabad and Mumbai stating that the Varrier winking a boy in the song insults Prophet Mohammad. According to sources, "The petition claims that the song has been misunderstood by people residing outside Kerala, as it is being translated and taken out of context, leading to the registration of multiple criminal cases against the petitioners. Moreover, the fact that no such complaint was filed in Kerala goes to show that the criminal complaints filed against them lack sound legal basis."

The petition also says that why an 18-year old actress has been dragged into the case simply for acting and also that it violates their freedom of speech and expression and right to life and liberty.

It states, "The claims that it hurts the religious sentiments of the Muslim Community are without any basis. What is hard to fathom is that a song which has been in existence for the past 40 years, which was written, sung and cherished by the Muslim Community in Kerala is now being treated as an insult to the Prophet and his wife. It is submitted that a song, which has existed for more than 40 years and which has been cherished by more than 1 Crore Muslim population of Kerala cannot suddenly offend the religious sentiment of the Muslim Community."

Oru Adaar Love is a Malayalam film slated to release in June during Eid.
