A few days back, Anushka Sharma-produced Bulbbul, a supernatural drama that received a similar reaction from netizens on the note of using inappropriate dialogues and religious sentiments.

According to media sources, Krishna And His Leela have shown the male lead named as ‘Krishna’ who has sexual rendezvous with many women including one of them named as ‘Radha’. 

The movie Bulbbul was released on Netflix on June 24 as a follow-up to Anushka Sharma’s relentless efforts to refresh the horror genre in India.

Krishna And His Leela is produced by the Bahubali fame actor Rana Daggubati. The film is also jointly produced by Suresh Productions, Sanjay Reddy, and Viacom18 pictures.

To verify the authenticity of the video clip, we saw the movie at the exact location where the poem recital begins. We could not find the word haramzada used for Lord Krishna in the short video clip ubiquitous on social media. The word has now been edited to natkhat after the backlash. However, the word besharm for goddess Radha is still intact in the subtitles. The Bengali poem recited in the scene is Kolonkini Radha, which portrays the distasteful side of Goddess Radha, hence the words.
